Deeply mired in debt, compulsive gambler Maya (Okada Junichi) resorts to joining a scam ring to pay off his loans. While living in the gutters, he meets Hisako (Miyazaki Aoi), a young woman tracing the story of her mother's (also Miyazaki Aoi) past love with a comedian (Ito Atsushi). In another parts of town, B-list idol Myako (Hirayama Aya) is on the verge of losing her job, but an opportunity suddenly appears that changes both her career and her relationship with otaku idol-chaser Yusuke (Tsukamoto Takashi). Meanwhile, power businessman Ryutaro (Miura Tomokazu) is so inspired by his encounter with a homeless man (Nishida Toshiyuki) that he too decides to begin a new life on the sidewalks. As a typhoon descends upon Tokyo, unrelated lives begin to cross over and a strange twist of fate befalls these quirky souls. Edit Translation

Story : It teach you about how beautiful life is, to never give up on anything and just move forward.
you will find it amusing because all of the story for the characters is connected somehow.
Acting / Cast : they play nicely and really into their character.
Music : the music really catch the feel of the story.
Rewatch Value : as much as the story is great but not so much to be watching it again, cuz you already know the essence of the story.
Overall : If u never watch this movie, u should consider watching it, even though is not about romance, more like for a life lessons and family value.
