Shuhei (10) is leading a tough life. His alcoholic mother Akiko can only hook up with bad guys and order Shuhei to go get money from his disapproving grandparents instead of going to school. Except raising the little half-sister, his rock-bottom life seems to have no end until one day Akiko orders Shuhei, now 16 years old, to rob the aging grandparents one last time for the family. Inspired by a true event, the film portrays the life of a boy who only knew the world through the twisted love of his mother.
