Synopsis
Three stories of undying love, as told by Bunraku Dolls (Japanese traditional puppets)... Matsumoto and Sawako were once a happy couple, but the pressures of meddling parents and success forces them to make a tragic choice. Hiro is an aging yakuza boss. Thirty years ago, he was a poor factory worker who abandoned his loving girlfriend for his dreams of making it big. Now, he is drawn back to the park where they used to meet. Haruna spends a lot of time looking at the sea, her beautiful face now covered in bandages. Not long ago, she was a successful pop star who lived in a world of TV shows and autograph sessions. Her most devoted fan, Nukui, plans to prove it.
