STORY
Matsui came to Tokyo for a summer course at a preparatory school, to challenge the college entrance exam once again. Also his high school friend Rie, was a student attending the same course. But Matsui had different plans besides attending school. He was planning to meet Ikuko, another girl friend who had left for Tokyo a little earlier than him. Matsui made an appointment with Ikuko, but she already had previous plans to meet other men (played by Okamoto, and Hamaguchi). Mean while Rie attempts to go on a date with Matsui. The film captures a ordinary life of five young souls, each struggling with their youth, and trying to come across each other. "Directing this film was such a joy, just watching the actors facial expressions were something (besides mine, ofcourse) ” says director.
