This film tells the story of a small diner in Tokyo, which is only open from midnight to seven in the morning. It attracts a group of regular customers from many walks of life, and people get to see snippets of the customers' lives.
There are three main stories in the film, one about a woman who wears funeral attire to relieve stress, one about a man who has to learn the trade of soba noodles as he will inherit his family noodle shop, and an elderly lady who goes to Tokyo after receiving a phone call about his son. The stories are authentic enough and hence I think many people can relate to them. We can also see how people help each other out, even though they are strangers to each other. It's a heartwarming film.
