Synopsis

The lives of three sisters subtly change when a teenage half-sister they never knew arrives on the scene.

Sachi, 29, Yoshino, 22, and Chika, 19, live together in their late grandmother's home in Kamakura. They've lived there for years, since their parents divorced and went their separate ways, leaving the girls with their grandmother.

When they receive news of their father's death, Sachi sends Yoshino and Chika to attend the funeral. They discover they have a half-sister, Suzu, 13, from their father's second marriage. Suzu is living with their father's third wife, who is a bit of a flake, so they invite the girl to move in with them.

The three sisters adore Suzu, whose presence in their lives gives them a new purpose and direction. However, they discover that Suzu had a closer relationship with their father than they'd imagined, and it forces them to confront the reality of his abandonment of them.
