Summary Keiko (You) is a flaky and irresponsible single mother who sub-contracts all parental duties to her eldest boy, 12-year-old Akira (Yagira), while taking off for days at a time with various boyfriends. Leaving behind an envelope of cash, one day she simply never comes back, leaving Akira unattended with his little siblings. Akira, his two sisters, Kyoko (Ayu Kitaura) and Yuki (Momoko Shimizu), and their irrepressible younger brother, Shigeru (Hiei Kimura), are not quite aware of the horrific implications of their plight. They are accustomed to living with a childlike, erratic parent, who is capable of being funny and generous as well as neglectful. All four of the children have different fathers. Now they have no mother, but they have one another.
