Charming domestic drama. Tamako (pop star Maeda Atsuko) has graduated, but doesn’t really know what she wants to do yet and is living with her father, who looks after her like a mother. Tamako is really good at being bored. By the maker of the infectious Linda, Linda, Linda.

A subtle sociological portrait of one Japanese twenty-and-something girl who, as some of her peers, does not want to get into active life and falls into deathlike lazyness and "doing-nothing-style-of-life". However, slowly, thanks to everyday's rituals and her father's attentions, Tamako will recover because she still has feelings inside and her dad finally utters a "stop" with a deadline. Deep and intimate.
