Plot Summary: After a tiring business trip, a 48-year-old businessman took the wrong train and, instead of heading his home at Tokyo, the train took him to his birthplace at Kurayoshi, Tottori Prefecture. Being slightly drunk, he allowed himself to be taken back to his hometown, followed by visiting his mother's grave. There, he suddenly felt sleepy, and when he woke up he found himself in the same graveyard -- 34 years ago, wearing his middle school uniform.
