Synopsis: Sonoko Fujiki, an ordinary 42-year-old housewife, lives in a multi-story apartment in Tokyo. Her daily routine consists of cooking, washing, cleaning --- nothing more, nothing less. Although she seems to have a happy family life on the surface, she often feels empty and depressed. One day, Sonoko calls a disk jockey, Kanae for advice. While on air, she asks her "Why can't I be the wife or woman I used to be now that I'm a mother?" Kanae hears the pain in Sonoko's voice and irresponsibly suggests that she run away from home.

 The next morning, her husband and her son are shocked to see on the family message board: "I am leaving home. Sorry, Sonoko."
