Michi is only 3 years old. Her mother is irritated at her husband who doesn’t help in caring for their child. She takes Michi’s hand and goes to the train station. Today is the first day at work.
Surrounded by a crowd of commuters, Michi is scared and can’t walk. She finds herself meeting generous people, even in an uncomfortably crowded train.
