Sachie is a housewife who has dedicated her life to taking care of her family. Mako is head of a huge hotel chain who has dedicated her life to her career. The two meet in hospital after both receive terminal diagnoses. Faced with imminent mortality, they accidentally find the “bucket list “written by a terminally ill 12-year-old girl patient. To live life to its fullest, Sachie and Mako decide to go on a journey to accomplish her list on her behalf. This heartwarming adventure about the meaning of life and friendship remakes the Jack Nicholson/Morgan Freeman original recasting the roles with Japanese top actresses.
