Inspired by Kyohei Sakaguchi’s books on inventive “homeless” architecture, “Tokyo 0 Yen House 0 Yen Seikatsu” and “Sumida-gawa no Edison”, the film depicts the contrast between homeless people living freely in a big city with the life of an elite junior high school student and his obsessive compulsive mother. Singer-songwriter Takao Ito, who has released six solo albums, plays the main protagonist.
Plot: Suzumoto-san (Ito) and his friend Sumi-chan (Eri Ishida) are homeless, but they’re happily building a makeshift home in the corner of a city park. Suzumoto takes his bicycle to turn in aluminum cans for food money and finds things he can use from what other people discard. Meanwhile, an academically gifted junior high school student named Shota (Sada Murata) lives a completely opposite, stress-filled life.
