Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota (ABE Hiroshi) wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. After the death of his father, his aging mother (KIKI Kilin) and beautiful ex-wife (MAKI Yoko) seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son (YOSHIZAWA Taiyo) - until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again.
