After his father’s death, Tawara Souta, a web designer who left his hometown in Kagawa prefecture to live in Tokyo, returns to the countryside where he grew up.
Souta is freaked out by his encounter with a shape-shifting tanuki, but how could anyone leave such a lonely-seeming little thing to fend for itself? He offers the hungry crybaby some shoyumame to eat, and a bath to boot.
Souta is sleeping with a tossing and turning Poco when his longtime friend Nakajima Shinobu shows up for an impromptu fishing trip... at 3 AM. The trio cast their lines under the Red Lighthouse, but the fish just aren’t biting.
Souta’s big sister Rinko walks in on Souta, Poco, and Nakajima fast asleep after their fishing trip. Souta is frantic to stop Rinko from prying about Poco, but he’s not the only nervous one—Rinko says she’s bad with kids, and Poco’s afraid of her.
Buttering his longtime friend up with some bone-in chicken, Souta asks Nakajima to go with him to shoot a video for a class reunion. The two return to their old high school and end up reminiscing about the good old days.
Souta needs to go back to Tokyo urgently, but he can’t leave Poco alone. What’s he to do except for take the tyke with him? Naturally, when they step into the office, Poco becomes the center of attention.
