Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
Story takes place several years after Shuzo (Isao Hashizume) and his wife Tomiko (Kazuko Yoshiyuki) nearly divorced.
Shuzo still enjoys driving his own car. His oldest son Konosuke (Masahiko Nishimura) and his wife Fumie (Yui Natsukawa) notice a dent on Shuzo’s car. They worry that Shuzo is now too old to safely drive. They make a plan to have Shuzo return his driver's license. Shuzo's daughter Taizo (Shozo Hayashiya) and her husband Shigeko (Tomoko Nakajima) and Shuzo's youngest son Shota (Satoshi Tsumabuki) and his girlfriend Noriko (Yu Aoi) are also worried about Shuzo’s driving. Yet, Shuzo is too stubborn to quit.
One day, while Shuzo is driving with bar owner Kayo (Jun Fubuki), he happens to meet Ginnpei Maruta (Nenji Kobayashi). They graduated from the same school in their home town of Hiroshima. For the first time in 40 years, Shuzo and Ginnpei drink alcohol together at Kayo’s bar. Shuzo then lets Ginnpei stay at his house. Soon, a new disturbance arises at the Hirata family.
