Two brothers, Takashi and Mitsu, return from Tokyo to the village of their childhood. The selling of their family home leads them to a confrontation with their family history. Their attempt to escape the influence of the city ends in failure as they realize that its tentacles extend to everything in the countryside, including their relationship.
