Synopsis: Mika, a nurse, lives alone in a women’s dormitory. She is on a terminal ward, where death is a common occurrence. Her day’s work done, she bicycles off to her second job as a hostess in a ‘girlie bar’. There she sports a fixed smile, but has to fight to hide her sense of pointlessness and isolation. Shinji is a day-hire construction worker who also lives alone in a cheap apartment. Almost blind in his left eye, he is part of a loose-knit group comprising the older Tomoyuki the middle-aged Iwashita, and the Filipino guest worker Andres, but even these friendships cannot allay a vague sense of anxiety. Sitting alone reading in a restaurant one night, he and Mika see each other and exchange glances.Little by little, halfway between despair and hope, the two draw slowly together.
