Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this Japanese comedy drama, a trading company office manager has a nice life with his wife and family. Of his four daughters, three are already married while the youngest is engaged to the son of his close friend. Later, the manager and his friend have a fight at a college reunion as to whether they should tell their other friend that he has terminal cancer. Meanwhile the manager's brother tells him that he has embezzled a huge amount of money, and this forces the manager to sell his stocks to preserve the family name. He loads the money in a briefcase, but instead of taking it to his brother he boards a train on a whim and flees town. Later the daughters and his wife gather together to talk about the missing money. The manager goes to Osaka and accidentally books a room at a whorehouse where he finds himself very pleased with the services offered. He remains for 10-days before deciding to return home.
