Four siblings live happily with their mother in a small apartment in Toyko. The children all have different fathers. They have never been to school. The very existence of three of them has been hidden from the landlord. One day, the mother leaves behind a little money and a note, asking her 12-year old boy to look after the others. And so begins the children's odyssey, a journey nobody knows.
