* with English subtitle

Hifumi's job is to fillet fish in a small-town supermarket. She cares for her bedridden mother in a tiny apartment. One day, she is reunited with Daisuke, who has returned from Tokyo, and attempts to rekindle the small flame of hope that she had buried deep in her heart. The feeling of hopelessness of a woman in her mid-20s having to care for a family member is expressed through the act of washing her hands. Watching Hifumi makes us want to sincerely root for her so that a brighter future will come her way.
