Koji’s gambling father who disappeared 13 years ago leaving debts behind him is found alive and has 3 months to live. While Koji’s mother and his older brother have a grudge against him, Koji wonders what his father was really doing during that period, and whether he is still worthless like his mother and brother think of or a good father like the image he has in his memory.

6 months later, Koji hears stories about his father from attendees at his funeral which fills in a 13-year-blank in his memory that he thought would have been impossible. Furthermore, the facts that even his family doesn’t know start being revealed. This is a family drama based on a true story.

Directed by Takumi Saitoh, primarily known as an actor. This is his seventh directorial project and his debut feature film. Starring Issei Takahashi as Koji, Mayu Matsuoka as his girlfriend, Lily Franky as the vanished father and numerous talented and unique cast for the attendees of the funeral, a role of a sound director is taken by Nobuaki Kaneko who works as an actor and a musician.
