Sadatomo (Yamato Okitsu), the son of a strict and dictatorial middle school teacher, struggles to live his own life under his father's disapproving gaze. When Sadatomo and his friends are caught stealing from a neighborhood store, his father is outradged and punishes them by assigning each of them a written task that examines their own actions. Moved by his father's disappointment, Sadatomo writes a profound paper that pleases his father, who submits the work to a writing competition that only serves to display his father's despicable character.
