Four sisters gather at their childhood house after their mother’s death. Slowly, along with their childhood items, the bittersweet memories of each of the sisters revive. Digging into the boxes, they find a fetal ultrasound image. This photo gradually reveals the deep underlying problems of this family; the reason why there are four of them and the struggles they face living in Japan as women. The sisters’ feelings towards the house mingle and crash.
