Family man Toshio lives an ordinary suburban life with his wife Akié and their cute-as-a-button daughter, Hotaru. They run a small metalworking factory out of their house, and although everyday life is relatively mundane, they are happy enough to peacefully move through their daily routine. Until one day that is, when an old acquaintance linked to Toshio’s past walks into their home workshop and puts everything in jeopardy. *Catalan première
