Seijiro Koyama spins this melodrama based on the real-life exploits of a humble bus conductor who made it his life quest to plant cherry trees. Haunted by memories of cherry blossoms during his mother's funeral, Saito (Saburo Shinoda) has lined his Nagoya to Kanazawa bus route with cherry trees. Though his wife Chikako (Yoshiko Tanaka) is concerned for him, Saito's sister Fumi (Kirin Kiki) and bus-driving buddy Kota (Hiromitsu Suzuki) support him on his quixotic quest to link the Pacific Coast and the Sea of Japan Coast with cherry trees. His mission takes on added urgency when he is diagnosed with cancer.
