    • Synopsis
    • The four occupants of Cell 204, being careful not to be detected by their jailers, bet their osechi New Year’s dinners on who can concoct the most mouth-watering tale of ‘the best food I ever had’. The winner gets everyone elses’ New Year’s dinner as well as his own.
      Since dinner is the most eagerly anticipated part of the day in a prison, and New Year’s dinner is the most eagerly anticipated meal of the year, the stakes are high and the competition intense.
      One talks of his childhood and his mother’s home-cooked food; another of eating together with his beloved son, another of the food his girlfriend made for him.
      The newest prisoner in the cell, however, was abandoned by his parents as a child and has no such warm memories.
      Listening to his cell-mates, however, he does remember the short time he spent with his mother, and a woman who truly did love him and wanted to make him happy.
      And he remembers the meal she cooked for him...
