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
