Second-year high school students Sou Utsumi (Sosuke Ikematsu) and Shokichi Seto (Masaki Suda) spend their days after school just hanging out and talking beside a dry riverbed. Though Utsumi and Seto have opposite personalities, they enjoy playing stupid word games, fretting over just what words to use when texting the girls they like, and having deep conversations. The two of them never seem to run out of things to talk about. The only other person who watches over them is their classmate Ichigo Kashimura (Ayami Nakajo) who has a crush on Utsumi. Based on Kazuya Konomoto’s popular manga of the same title, this dialogue-based comedy explores the experience of high-school boys in Osaka – which also makes the film a good aid for getting to grips with the infamous Osaka-ben (Osakan dialect).
