A Japanese couple stuck in part-time jobs with inadequate income, become shoplifters to make ends meet. They are not alone in this behaviour, as the younger and the older of the household are also in on the act. One day the father and his son come across a young girl out in the freezing cold. Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships she faces, and the unusual routine changes from care-free and matter-of-fact to something more dramatic as the couple open their doors to the beleaguered young girl. They seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that unite them.
