Does a person need nobility of the soul to be a great artist? Renowned HK artist Wong Yan-kwai says, "I'm a born painter, so I paint.” His famous line is: When you are used to poverty, you don't feel poor. In the interaction of Wong Yan-kwai and Director Angie, sparks and arguments, egos and humility, love and betrayal, and human complexities surface.

In the spring of 1945, cherry blossoms flower in southern Sakhalin. For Tetsu Ezure and her sons, they symbolize hope. But the following August, the Soviet Union invades and they flee from Sakhalin. Barely managing to make it across the strait to Hokkaido, they make their way down the coast to Abashiri. Awaiting the battered family there is a life so harsh as to strain the imagination: cold and hunger through which they must struggle to survive. The younger son, Shujiro, now grown, returns from America. He returns to Abashiri for the first time in 15 years to find his older brother gone and his elderly mother living alone in poverty, still waiting for her husband to return. Shujiro decides to take her home and care for her. Tetsu, however, disappears, not wishing to cause problems for her successful son. Shujiro, in an effort to reach out, decides to accompany her, and the two set out around the vast plains of Hokkaido on a journey into the past. The journey, however, opens the door to some long-buried memories.

The second son (Satoshi TSUMABUKI) is planning to get married to his girlfriend (Yu AOI). They appear to be leading ordinary but happy lives, but a tempest suddenly hits the family. On the birthday of Tomiko, her husband, Shuzo, asks her what she wants as a memorial gift.

Surviving his wife’s surprise divorce proposal and his old buddy’s sudden death (What a Wonderful Family! I & II, 40th & 41st), Shuzo and the Hirata family are blown by another colossal storm. A crisis ensues when one afternoon housewife Fumie finds her secret money stolen by a thief. Upset by her husband’s fury, she leaves the house, and the whole family soon falls into a state of chaos. Paying tribute to Naruse Mikio’s Wife! Be Like a Rose! (1935) by adopting the same Japanese title, Yamada continues to dissect society in microcosm through domestic life, giving a voice to women characters who, have the capacity for desire, ambition and mending mistakes.
