Ten-year-old Takuya has a new job: to look after his baby brother Minoru…looks like it’s time to put on the kid gloves!
Seiichi and Tomoko are on the outs, thanks to Seiichi's weakness for gambling. But with Seiichi unavailable, Tomoko can dig up only one date for her big class reunion: Takuya's dad! Worse, at the reunion, the whole class learns Seiichi's most embarrassing secret. Can Seiichi and Tomoko patch things up this time, or will reliving old school days turn the adults into bickering kids?
Young Takuya has it tough. After his mother passed away it has been his job to take care of his baby brother, Minoru while their father, Harumi, works the long hours of a Japanese "salaryman." Takuya must sacrifice the playtime usually associated with childhood for the responsibilities of an adult. Cooking, cleaning, sewing and scolding are all now an integral part of the young boy's life. "All work and no play" has Takuya incredibly frustrated and resentful of his little brother. Will Takuya find it in his heart to love the brother who is causing him so much grief?!
