Yamao and Umiko are finally blessed with a child! The happy two. However, the wife is obsessed with ballroom dance. And there is a rumor that she’s an item with her partner, Iketani. Perhaps the baby is his. Yamao is in torment. Even a dog won’t get itself involved in an argument between husband and wife. Umiko says she’s not cheating, but can Yamao believe her? Watching Umiko dance in heels with her bump, Yamao is caught in anxiety. Even death passes his mind — the baby is born. A “road-theatre” where a useless event follows another. Foolish but dear. Crazy but grand.


Performed in Japanese with English and Korean subtitles
