An unpopular screenwriter, Gota, and his wife, Chika, have been married for ten years with a daughter between them. Gota earns a paltry $5,000 a year and is a pathetically poor family breadwinner. As such, he is constantly being berated and belittled by Chika. He yearns to restore a normal sex with his wife, but she rebuffs him and forces him to suffer in frustrated silence. And then a big opportunity arrives to turn things around. One of the plots he has been developing based on an actual news story gets noticed, and a request comes in for him to parlay it into a screenplay. But with no guarantee that anything will come of it, Gota hasn’t the funds nor a driver’s license to get him to locations requiring story research and development. So he persuades Chika to drive the family out into the countryside on ostensibly a working vacation for three. But when they arrive at their destination, they all learn that the story is already being made into a film by somebody else. The family, having instantly lost the purpose for the trip, reluctantly continue their four-night, five-day excursion confined to inflicting misery upon each other. But can this shock family therapy bring newfound happiness to the family? .
