    • Synopsis
    • Hinako moved to a 3 room apartment in the housing project called DANCHI with her husband Seiji, 6 months ago. They had managed a third generation herbal medicine store until the unexpected death of their beloved son in an accident. Since the move, Hinako has started a part time job, but Seiji spends everyday wandering aimlessly around. Occasionally a young man visits their household because remedy that Seiji makes is the only effective medicine for him. This mysterious young man, who speaks slightly strange Japanese, is Mr. Shinjo. After a while, Seiji disappears from the estate. Soon rumors start up, “Have they finally divorced?” and “Did he simply vanish?” To cap it all off, the housewives on the estate believe that Hinako
      has offed her husband and is hiding his body in their apartment. What really happened to Seiji? And who is Mr. Shinjo? Hinako and Seiji become the center of attention among this small community.
