Daigo Kobayashi, a noted cellist, loses his job as his orchestra is dissolved. He decides to return to his hometown with his wife to open a new chapter in life. Having applied for a job at a tourist agency, he finds out that the offered position is at an undertaker. His friends and relatives are sceptical about Daigo's new job, but he himself is glad to serve as a guardian at the gate of life and death or as the guide on the path to the afterlife. At the same time, paradoxically, he learns to appreciate the joy and beauty of life.
