After her husband’s death, Ginko's life is disturbed by the appearance of her problematic younger brother, Tetsuro, a failed singer who works in a street stall. Having to take over her familly's pharmacy with her mother-in-law and her daughter, her problems only seem to be getting worse by Tetsuro's return and her daugher's failed marriage and soon finds herself on her own.
