A short film about a childlike wife and her husband's love. With mundane conversation and familiar scenery, each day passes without any changes. But, in fact, every day is full of small adventures and nothing is the same as yesterday.

Hatsue and Takashi are an ordinary couple living in an old apartment in Tokyo. As usual, the husband goes to work and the wife does the housework. The two seem to be leading an ordinary life, but Hatsue is carrying a new life in her womb.

NOZAKI Yoshimi from “German Plus Rain” plays Hatsue, and UNO Shohei from “Bare Essence of Life” plays Takashi. The film was released in 2011 together with YOKOHAMA’s short film "Mayonaka kara tobiutsure" starring TABE Mikako.
