A film about the love between a mother and daughter told with much laughter and many tears. Futaba going through a rebellious phase and refuses to speak to her single mother Kaori. Kaori retaliates with “bento harassment” – sending Futaba to school each day with an elaborate home-made box lunch incorporating messages of love and encouragement. Over the next 3 years, Futaba overcomes her initial embarrassment and comes to appreciate these expressions of the undying support of her mother.
