    • Synopsis
    • Chika, although a talented pianist and attractive young woman, is one of an increasing number of agoraphobics in Japan. Approaching 30 and nearing the tenth year of having locked herself into her childhood bedroom, ignites her father’s rage when having to beg Chika's boss (his former student) to allow his immature daughter to keep her job. The pressure from her parents to succeed, along with the harsh sur-realities of Japanese culture cause her to flea to the countryside where she meets Shinpei; the, "slightly," over the hill and unmarried rice farmer who responded by snail mail to her bottled S.O.S.. Enjoying the delicious fruits of her labor, Chika's love of life is reborn through her new found respect of self.
