Several years have passed since Shuzo Hirata and his wife Tomiko came within inches of getting divorced. Shuzo enjoys getting out of the house and going for drives, but after his car starts to collect more dents than ever before, his eldest son Konosuke and daughter-in-law Fumie begin to worry about his safety as an elderly driver, and decide to ask him to relinquish his license. 

Then one day as Shuzo is out driving, he happens to meet his old classmate from Hiroshima, Ginpei Maruta . They indulge in a few drinks at Kayo’s bar for the first time in over 40 years, and Shuzo invites Maruta to stay the night at his house.
