Three homeless people find an abandoned baby while searching through a bin on Christmas Eve and decide to try and track down her parents. On their journey they encounter many obstacles (not least a hitman and his wife) and are forced to confront the reasons they found themselves on the streets in the first place. Separated from their own families at this festive period, the trio cope by forming their own ‘family’. An extraordinary anime comedy-drama from the hugely talented Satoshi Kon.
