SYNOPSIS

In an ordinary, small town along a national highway different
people with different lives...Some school girls upset the owner of a 24-hour convenience store. Some "neets" feel depressed in their shabby apartment. A man, his wife, and his pregnant lover have a battle on the night of his mom's funeral. A couple from the country are feeling distant from each other in their dream city, Tokyo. Some men confine a school girl in a disused warehouse. A man meets a prostitute in a love hotel.

True stories pretending to be a false ones! Stupid, serious, filthy, stoic, giving up, yet trying hard.

Small life is Beautiful!
