It's the foundation of humans. That thing is "family." Family relations have become weak, and they say that the "ties" of the good old days have begun to disappear. Even if you try to reform the "ties," you feel embarrassed and worry about what others will say about you expressing your love. The truth is, each and every one of us, deep in our hearts, is aching for familial love.
The story could be that of any in a small country town.
However, it's a family's true shape which we've forgotten.
A family of seven's everyday time -- Growth.

Won't you try one more time to think of "family"?
And then, won't you try to return the "ties" between us people?
The tie between parents and their children.
The tie between siblings.
The tie between husband and wife.
The tie between friends.

Cast & Credits
Basically, the drama follows a loving and warm family as they deal with the mother's illness and then her death and their life afterwards. Everything is handled quite delicately and the various storylines with all the many characters just mesh quite well together.
Kamiki Ryounosuke as Horo was a standout character in my opinion, as the narrator of the drama. His interactions with his family members and his friends were all so poignant.
Overall, a meaningful and deep family drama that addresses the depth of familial love.
