Successful architect Ryota is convinced that his life – which is planned to the smallest detail, including the time he spends with his wife and young Keita – is absolutely perfect. So he is shocked to learn that Keita is the son of a totally different man, whose wife gave birth at the same time as Ryota’s wife Midori. Only now, six years later, do they learn that the boys were switched in the hospital. This far-from-unrealistic situation introduces the film’s main theme: what is the ratio of nature to nurture in the development of personality? According to the director-father, he himself struggled with this question without finding an answer. His film offers just one solution – tolerance.
