In this good-natured comedy, Densuke (Toshiyuki Nishidin), the clerk to a Japanese construction company living in southern Shikoku, is no longer a young man. He doesn't have many things he cares about anymore, except his daily fishing expeditions. He is unhappy to learn that his loyal service now requires that he be "promoted" to the Tokyo office where such regular pleasures will no longer be possible. In the last few days before he must move, Densuke continues to enjoy his fishing expeditions. On one such day, he meets Suzuki (Rentaro Mikuni), an affable old man who is obviously very lonely, and he invites him to join him on his daily fishing trip. The old man does, and has a whopping good time, in part because on the first day he catches an enormous amount of fish. The old man figures out that Densuke works for the company he is president of long before Densuke gets wise, but after a few small disturbances, the natural harmony of the universe is pleasingly restored.
