Shortly after her mother's funeral, meek and mild-mannered Masako has an unprecedented violent clash with her sister, and strangles her. When the police begin investigating the death, she steals the cash donated by the funeral guests and flees to Osaka, which is full of refugees from the 1995 Kobe earthquake. Living life on the run, Masako is forced to discover inner resources she had no idea she possessed.
