Daigo plays cello in a Tokyo orchestra that dissolves. He's not good enough to find another chair, so he asks his cheerful wife Mika to move to his boyhood home in the shadow of Mt. Fuji. She assents. His mother is dead; his father left them when Daigo was small. He answers an ad, thinking it's for a travel agency, but it's to prepare bodies for burial in a ceremony in front of family and friends. The boss, Sasaki, is quietly forceful; Daigo takes the job, giving Mika no details. As he finds dignity in the ritual and a father figure in Sasaki, Daigo learns how others see this "unclean" work. Has he found a place in the world; if so, what about Mika and his buried memories?
