The setting is Hokkaido, where Kumakiri is from. Ichio, who works at his father's run-down drive-in located along a national road, has lived his life withdrawn into his shell, looking at things in a slanted way. Then, when his father goes away on a trip, Ichio is forced to look after the shop by himself, and he meets Taeko, a tourist who drops by at the shop after breaking up with her lover, and falls in love with her.
A man who has lived in a "hole" loves a woman by dragging her into his "hole". Meanwhile, the woman is only looking for temporary solace. Ichio's happiness eventually becomes affected by suspicion and jealousy, and crumbles without resistance. Then, when he thoroughly faces his own pitiful self, he finally makes the decision to leave his "hole".
