This movie is a piece of crap. This is coming from a fan of Studio Ghibli movies and the slice of life/drama genre.
It's about this girl who nobody likes, and for good reason. She moves to Kochi, in the country and makes fun of the peoples' accent there, so already she's kind of a racist to begin with. Then she mooches this guy's money just to take a trip back to Tokyo where she's from.
