Shinden is an overly serious rakugo comic storyteller apprentice. He encounters his senior, Shintoto, who had given up rakugo to live a more carefree lifestyle. As Shinden deals with various struggles, he learns how to live a more appropriate, enjoyable life. Lifetime employment and the security of working for a major corporation have ended, so now it's difficult to be assured of happiness, regardless of age...In spite of that, we want to convey to all of the "Something Like It" people of today just how wonderful it is to leave yesterday behind, and positively strive for a better tomorrow.
