Plot

Daikichi is a 70-year-old man living on a small island somewhere in Japan. His wife passed away two years ago and he now lives alone with his 10-year-old cat Tama. Having lived there his entire life, he is surrounded by old friends - including his childhood buddy and next-door neighbor Iwao - plus the many island cats. They gather together at a newly opened café, run by a beautiful lady, Michiko, who is a newcomer on the island. Their days go by peacefully. Daikichi's son Tsuyoshi, who resides in Tokyo, worries about his father living by himself, but Daikichi and Tama enjoy their carefree and laid-back lifestyle and have no worries or complaints. However, although Daikichi expected his daily routine to last indefinitely, the death of a close friend and his own health scare begin to cast shadows over his happy life with his beloved cat.
