The scene is set in a shopping center in Japan. An older shopkeeper preparing bento boxes becomes stuck in movement while trying to bend down. A young employee decides to cross the building to take her employer to a chiropractor. Although the shopping center it- self appears near-futuristic, details such as the characters’ gestures and items displayed at stores express sense of Japanese elements.
