It seems to be a typical Japanese family. Much too little talking done, way too many things remained unsaid – and now the father of the family is dead, leaving behind three children and his wife. It’s time to think about the past; about the father of whom so little is known. Akira Yamamato seasons the search for the legacies of the father with borrowings from crime movies. Breaking the barrier of silence, tension persists until finally the protagonists begin to talk. The minute that the conversation takes off, all suspicions begin to appear in a new light.
