The two enjoy a supportive relationship and treat each other like friends; however, one day Yoko gets drunk and brings home a younger man with strange blond hair (Kenta Kiritani), announcing that she’s going to marry him. The abruptness of the announcement throws Tsukiko into a state of confusion and fills her with feelings of betrayal as she tries to make sense of this unexpected development in both of their lives. She gets so desperate she even tries to get family and friends to intercede, but eventually discovers the real reason behind her mother’s seemingly rash actions when she uncovers a secret about her health.

It’ s a beautiful movie that’ll make you cry and say to your mom “I love you”.
