Synopsis
The 2015 best-seller novel by Miu Kakiya has been adapted to film by director Tetsu Maeda (“A Banana? At This Time of Night?”). As of April, 2020, the book has sold over 260,000 copies.
In Japan, it is said you need 20 million yen saved up for retirement. Though everyone has their worries about the future, not many openly talk about it. This film comically depicts this problem through the eyes of a respectable-looking family that’s actually a bit dysfunctional.

The main character, Atsuko, is your average housewife who believes in frugality. She has a husband, Akira, who’s quite clueless about the family budget, a daughter who works part-time, and a son in college. Though Atsuko had been saving up for retirement, she gets in an argument with her sister-in-law and her husband one day, and she ends up having to pay 4 million yen for her father-in-law’s funeral. As if that’s not enough, her husband’s company goes bankrupt, she gets fired from her part-time job, her daughter wishes for a lavish wedding with her fiancé who’s in a heavy metal band, and her big-spending mother-in-law moves in. The family’s savings dwindle by the day.
Problems between husband and wife, parent and child, wife and mother-in-law, a child’s marriage, a child moving out, caring for a parent, and funerals… These are all problems that everyone faces. As the family is hit by one dilemma after another, they struggle and torment themselves in order to overcome adversity.


主人公・後藤篤子(天海祐希)は、家計に無頓着な旦那・章とフリーター娘のまゆみ、大学生の勇人を息子に持つ、節約がモットーのごく普通な主婦。夫の給料と自身がパートで稼いだお金をやり繰りし、憧れのブランドバッグも我慢して、コツコツ老後の資金を貯めてきた。篤子には病気の舅と、高級ケアマンションで暮らす姑の芳乃がいた。月々のケアマンションの費用だけでも痛手だったのに、舅が亡くなり、章の妹・志津子と葬式代を誰がいくらを出すかで揉め、結局 400 万円近くも支払うことに。さらに、パートの契約が更新されず、篤子はクビを
言い渡されてしまう...。そんな中、まゆみが結婚相手を家に連れてきた。メタルのバンドマン・琢磨は見かけによらず地方実業家の御曹司で、半年後の結婚式は格式高い麻布寿園で行いたいという。しかも費用は折半で。篤子は多額の出費予定に慄きながら、なんとかまゆみを送り出した。そんな中、章から会社が倒産したという連絡が入る。夫婦揃っての失業、減り続ける老後の資金。窮地に立たされた篤子は、レンタルモップの解約、車の売却と次々に節約改革を行う。しかし、篤子の努力もむなしく、お金はどんどん出ていくばかり...。これまでの生活が変化していくことを実感する篤子。そして、志津子と姑の今後に関して話している最中、篤子は思わず芳乃を引き取ると口走ってしまう。芳乃を加えて新たな生活が始まった。ところが高級和菓子屋に嫁いだ芳乃のお金の使い方は奔放で、またまた出費がかかる始末。窮地に立たされた篤子はどうする?!
