Everyone has the right to lose control at one point in their life. Junichi is a young man without a job or a home who seems to have a great power of fascination over women. He crosses the paths of different women who are unsatisfied with their lives and find comfort in his presence. It is a subtle love story between Junichi’s drifting life and six different women from 16 to 65 years old. For one night only, for Junichi inevitably takes the road again, elusively, but not before inspiring in these women an imperceptible change.
