Sanada Minoru (Tanabe Seiichi), is an artistically-inclined cameraman who cannot support his family. His wife, Megumi (Mitsuura Yasuko), has set up a cafe, but no customers come. And yet they have eight children. Their eldest son, Kazuo (Kamiki Ryunosuke), is working his way through high school to support the family by delivering newspapers and part-timing at the petrol kiosk. Minoru says Kazuo has the “oldest child syndrome”. Kazuo considers it his duty as the eldest son to devote himself to the family even if it is at his own expense and always shoulders everything by himself. That is why he is frustrated all the time. Naturally, he is on bad terms with his happy-go-lucky father. He is also the one who goes to ask for a loan. However, the uncle who is his one and only hope, has left a huge debt behind and run away. There is not time for that. At his wits end, Kazuo cuts school and starts on a new part-time job … … A week later, his absence from school is exposed and the family holds a meeting at home. There are 1, 2, 3 … … 11 people around the dining table!? Who is the eleventh person in the ten member Sanada family?!?!
