Sangoroh, a rakugo (theatrical storytelling) artist, has a drinking problem and is annoyed by his supportive and loving partner Manami’s pestering him about it. One day, Sangoroh cheats on Manami with Saori, the girlfriend of his junior disciple, Komaki. Seeing how deeply hurt Saori is from her past marriage, Sangoroh feels bad for her and gives Saori the money that he and Manami and had saved. Manami and Sangoroh get into a fight which ends tragically when Sangoroh’s words get out of hand, attacking Manami’s deceased father. Manami has been holding on to the memento of her deceased father and has not been able to overcome his death. Manami flees the house with anger and sorrow. After losing Manami, Sangoroh finally understands how precious she is to him. Sangoroh’s mentor, Tsukumo, tells him a rakugo story called “Kawarime”, one that Sangoroh had long dreamed of acting in front of an audience. It takes this rakugo for Sangoroh to realize that he must get his life back in order. Is it too late?
