ストーリー/STORY

Kogure gets a job in a factory that produces paperclips by hand from wires. He works monotonously day after day in a rough working environment under an overbearing manager. One day, Kogure finds a butterfly trapped in his apartment room and sets it free. He then comes home from work to find a woman who speaks a strange dialect inside his apartment. The next day, a man who appears to be the woman's father settles in the apartment as well, and the odd trio starts living together. But their relationship gradually begins to change after a certain incident.

イントロダクション/INTRODUCTION

This film depicts the daily lives of the slightly strange people who live in a tiny world where the clip factory, Kogure's apartment, the local diner and the neighborhood park are about the only things that exist. The way they consume mysterious foods and drinks that we've never seen or heard about before suggests that they live in a fantasy world far removed from reality. But at the same time, the characters are caught in the flow of labor and capital just like we are. Although nothing violent or dramatic happens in their little world, the people who live there experience cycles of hellos and goodbyes.
