Moving into his new apartment in Sendai, college student Shiina (Gaku Hamada from Fish Story) meets his new neighbor Kawasaki (Eita from Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai and Memories of Matsuko). Tall, confident Kawasaki and short, mild-mannered Shiina seem to be unlikely candidates for friendship, but they click over a mutual interest in Bob Dylan.

Kawasaki is an odd duck, but in an irresistibly cool and charming kind of way, and Shiina can't help but be drawn into his more exciting, if slightly loony world. Kawasaki's head is full of unpredictable ideas, like his absurd warnings about pet shop owner Reiko (Nene Otsuka from I Wish) or his even more absurd plan to steal a dictionary for their Bhutanese neighbor. Next thing Shiina knows, he's standing watch with a toy gun outside the bookstore, on the beginning of their bizarre, existential adventure
