Synopsis / Plot
Kuwabatake Chokitsu, former leading man of film and stage, runs away from the luxury nursing home where his daughter and son-in-law have stashed him after forcing him to write a will leaving them everything. Chokitsu has dementia and only fleetingly recalls their betrayal. But a thespian to the core, he can still recite great chunks of dialog from heralded performances like his King Lear. He is determined to find his adoring audience, wherever they are.
