Directed by Isshin Inudo who wrote the screenplay for 2003's hit film "Yomigaeri (Resurrection)." It's a love story between a college student who
works part-time at a mah-jong parlor, and a girl with cerebral palsy who calls herself Josee, after a character in a novel by Francoise Sagan.
At Tsuneo's workplace, a frequent topic of conversation is the old woman who walks around town pushing a buggy, the contents of which nobody
knows. As Tsuneo is out walking his boss's dog one morning, he runs across the old woman and her runaway buggy, which he stops, giving him the
chance to look inside. Much to his surprise, the buggy contains a girl who, unhappy that he r secret has been exposed, pulls a knife on him.
Despite the inauspicious introduction, Josee's grandmother invites Tsuneo to her house, where Josee has lived since she was a child, and the
seeds of a relationship are planted.
As Tsuneo and Josee become friends, and eventually lovers, she begins to open up, but as their relationship deepens, it becomes apparent that the
differences between them could be greater than they thought...
