Emerging filmmaker Ishii Yuya fashions this humorous and semi-surreal tale of an insecure young man who finds momentary happiness with a pretty factory girl, only to find his life falling apart after he stumbles across a corpse. Jiro is a chubby, clumsy man who loathes his appearance, and resigns himself to the fact that no girl could ever truly want him. But when Jiro falls in love with a factory girl named Rinko, he is shocked to find his affections returned. Rinko is charmed by Jiro's warmth and childlike innocence and, eventually, the pair moves in together. While Rinko treats her new domestic partner more like a pet than a proper mate, Jiro is still happy with his current living arrangement. Upon discovering the corpse of a female murder victim, however, Jiro's fleeting glimmer of happiness is instantly replaced with a suffocating sense of dread.
