Isshin Inudo spins this romantic fantasy about an ailing octogenarian and young, socially inept caregiver. Living in a spooky old house, Ayumi Nippori has lived with a crippling heart disease that should have killed him years ago. One day, he wakes up thinking that he is in his twenties, though his heart remains just as rickety as ever (Ayumi is played by 24-year-old actor Yusuke Iseya). Enter Narisu (Chizuru Ikewaki), a teenaged caregiver sporting clunky shoes and a frumpy skirt who nevertheless reawakens long-forgotten passions. Though she initially remains aloof and professional, Narisu quickly recognizes Ayumi as a kindred spirit and maybe something more. Soon their relationship takes on a dimension that her agency would frown upon.
