One summer, Yoshiko receives a phone call about her grandfather's death when she is having sex with her boyfriend. The funeral of her grandfather begins with her slovenly uncle, nagging aunt, shut-in cousin, and grandma who has dementia. No one cries at the funeral. Through several accidents, Yoshiko notices the feelings of her families that she hasn't noticed before and starts to think about "life" and "death". Afterwords, she makes a new out to steps out to visit the Ganges River in India.
