What a Wonderful Family! 3


Fumie (Yui Natsukawa) lives in a three-generational household with her two growing sons, her husband Konosuke (Masahiko Nishimura), and his parents. One afternoon, she nods off to sleep in between performing her usual chores, during which time a thief breaks into the house and steals a sum of money she kept hidden in the refrigerator!

Konosuke berates Fumie, saying: “You saved up a nest egg from my earnings?!” His insensitive negation of her daily struggle to complete all the household tasks dumped in her lap sets off an explosion of her pent-up anger and frustration. She walks out on the family, leaving them to do everything for themselves!

Konosuke’s mother Tomiko (Kazuko Yoshiyuki) is ill, so his father Shuzo (Isao Hashizume) takes on the unfamiliar tasks of cleaning, washing clothes, and cooking, but this doesn’t last long. The Hiratas finally come to understand and appreciate the sheer volume of work that Fumie was coping with every day on their behalf, but there is still no sign she will ever come back. This calls for an emergency family conference! Is the Hirata family on the verge of permanent collapse this time?!
