Summary
Follows the daily lives of a group of people barely scraping by in a slum on the outskirts of Tokyo. As desperate as their circumstances may seem, each of them, including the homeless father and son who dream of a home; the young woman hiding from the abuse she receives from her uncle; and a young boy who dreams of being a trolley conductor, find reasons to carry on
