Wryly humorous

Osamu and Nobuyo live with their family in a small and isolated house in Tokyo. Having only part-time jobs, they augment their income
by shoplifting. One day, after shoplifting from a store, Osamu and his son run into a little homeless girl shivering with cold.

At first glance, Osamu’s wife is not keen to take her under her wing, but she eventually feels sorry for her. Despite merely eking out a living from shoplifting, the family is happy, until an unforeseen incident unveils a secret that puts their bond to the test.
