[Synopsis] Minimalist record of a poor unemployed single, living alone in his tiny Tokyo apartment.
Living in Tokyo, the big city. The idea is to record the real story behind the daily life of a single unemployed man. Stressed, alone, strapped for cash. But there is an imaginary village in my mind, that makes me feel content. It is like a homeland for me. Should I go there...? But no, I stay in Tokyo, and live my life as it is.
