  The Master’s cooking and the friendly low-key atmosphere of his establishment fill the Midnight Diner night after night. One evening a burial urn left there brings a frown, but to his customers this is something new and it becomes the seed of entertaining speculation. An old customer, Tamako, comes in one night for the first time in a while. The mistress of a wealthy man who has died, she is between patrons, and strikes up a conversation with a young man. Michiru, a girl from the provinces without any money, walks out without paying her bill, then returns and begs the Master for a job. Living upstairs, she becomes part of the life of the diner; all the while her past is coming in search of her. Kenzo, a victim of the Fukushima tsunami disaster, comes to Tokyo and stirs things up in pursuit of Akemi, a diner regular. But through all of these small dramas, the question remains about what will become of the burial urn.

  Trailer :

  This is a story in jail. A story about learning a "new life”...

  Richard Yu, a typical fop, hits a passer-by when drink-driving and is sentenced to one year in jail.

  Contrary to what the outside world believes, life behind bars is not full of atrocity. Much to his surprise, it is a secluded world of its kind. This world has its own rules the survival tip from his cellmate Uncle Tat says it all, "give way, and get a way." As one learns the rules of survival, one can pass his time peacefully in jail.

  Uncle Tat teaches Richard many survival tactics, which helps him get by pretty well. Another friend Wu also watches over him, but Wu commits suicide before his release. Much to Richard’s grief, it is rumoured that the insult of his daughter in the outside world induces Wu’s death. The prime suspect in Richard’s mind is the newly transferred cellmate Jack. He’s not only against Richard in all aspects but also acts like a tyrant in jail, even the cell bosses Seatto and Coyote are somewhat fearful of him.

  His half a year jail life allows Richard to realise his shortcomings in the past, disappointing his loving mother and is ungrateful to Mayo, his girlfriend of four years. Richard promises Mayo to reform himself, and marry her upon his release.

  But Richard cracks up when Uncle Tat falls down the stairs from Laundry Room resulting in a coma. He believes the accident and the death of Wu are plotted by Jack, who is determined to exterminate him and those close to him. His repression accumulated over the months causes his break out, and Richard rushes into the Laundry Room to beat up Jack, but is subdued and his sentence increased. Being in the punishment cell for a month, Richard breaks down and is at the edge of insanity.
