A family drama that refreshingly depicts the struggles of a maverick, a free-spirited father and his children who are pushed around by him. The father, who suddenly moves to Okinawa and survives with his natural survival skills, is played by Etsushi Toyokawa, who also appeared in "Sanjuro" released the same year. Yuki Amami plays the role of the mother with an unexpected past. The fantastic ending, inspired by the legend of "Pai Pati Roma" in Okinawa, is a moving experience that leaves you feeling good even after it ends. Based on the novel of the same title by Naoki Prize-winning author Hideo Okuda.
