A naked drunk man shows up on a national live TV in the middle of a sacred festival Namahage, where men dressed in ogre-like costumes visit homes to scare kids not to do bad things in the next year. The man, young father Tasuku, gets ostracized for shaming the village and its tradition, flees to Tokyo by himself. After two years, he comes back to his hometown to make it up to his ex-wife and their little daughter, but the reality bites.
