It is 1962. Ueki Hitoshi is incredulous. Sudara Bushi which he had sung has become an unprecedented big hit. Ueki and the Crazy Cats were much sought after on TV and in films and he suddenly became a star. He needed an assistant who could also be his driver due to his hectic schedule. And along came an extraordinarily energetic young man called Matsuzaki Masaomi who would accompany Ueki on the set. He is overwhelmed by the performances of Ueki and the Crazy Cats. Their skits were thoroughly slapstick and their music totally slick. In real life, Ueki was a serious man and had doubts about whether such performances served a useful purpose. Before they were aware of it, Matsuzaki who had lost his own father when he was a boy, started calling Ueki “father”. Ueki, his wife Tomiko and even his father Tetsujo accepted Matsuzaki like family. Matsuzaki aspired to be an entertainer and was absorbed in work and love. The two of them were the best teacher-student pair. ~~ Based on the autobiographical novel Nobosemonyaken by actor Komatsu Masao.
