Hajime has big dreams for his small family and has organized his wife and two children into a corporation. He runs a newspaper-delivery service, a taxi service, and a catering company, while his daughter has set up her school as a corporation, and his wife runs a telephone sex service. However, his son Taro is not in accord with his father's vision and even apologizes to his uncle for having to present him a bill for giving him a massage. At some point, the boy's stern and humorless (but not profit-driven) aunt and uncle gain the upper hand over the money-mad clan, and amid the conflicts, a good deal of self-examination occurs.
