    • Synopsis
    • Ten years have gone by since Eriko moved to Tokyo to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. However, things haven’t gone as she expected and, for Eriko, there was no hope in sight. She receives the news about her elder sister’s sudden death. Erika returns home to attend her sister’s funeral and barely manages to deliver a eulogy. Her relatives question Eriko’s pretended life as a successful actress. On a whim, Eriko declares that she will take care of Kazuma, her sister’s 10-year-old son, while finding out that her sister used to work as a mourner-for hire at funerals. As Eriko lives in her home-town, she recognizes how much she is protected by her sister during 10 years in Tokyo.
