  • "Before leaving for work, Sagawa stares at himself in a suit in the mirror and talks to himself ebulliently, just like a teacher cheering on a pupil. His obsession to do something for others leads him to create a hero, but others see him as a suspicious individual and he is backed into a corner. Around the same time, a clumsy bunch of people, Kawakami, Sagawa's colleague, Ohki, a new recruit, Nitta, his client and obsessive complainer, Tahara, who was dating Sagawa's friend, and Masaru, his brother, begin to rely on other 'humans' to escape their own loneliness and suffering. Knowing it is not just happiness and joy that lie ahead, the way they still rely on human nature, that people cannot live alone, is comical but consummately beautiful." Quoting the synopsis from the 2010 Tokyo International Film Festival site.
