Men and women gathered in a room in an apartment. A man who has just returned from buying alcohol senses a subtle tension in the room. The gathering was meant to cheer up their friend Sonoda, but Sonoda himself is not there… A film constructed out of the conversations that expand outward from within a confined space. It features a development that combines languor and tension and exquisitely meshes theatrical tempo dialogue and cinematic direction.
