Original Title: Miewoharu

(with English subtitles)


Synopsis: Ten years have gone by since Eriko moved to Tokyo to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. However, things haven't gone as she expected and for Eriko, there was no hope in sight. She receives the news about her sister's funeral and barely manages to deliver a eulogy. Her relatives question Eriko's pretended life as a successful actress. On a whim, Eriko declares that she will take care of Kazuma, her sister's 10-year old son while finding out that her sister used to work as a mourner-for-hire at funerals.
