Synopsis: 

"Funuke" is the story of a countryside family struggle. After both parents die in a car accident, elder sister Sumika (Satou Eriko) comes back home from Tokyo because the family are no longer able to send her money for acting school. The other 2 members of the family are the little sister Kyomi (Satsukawa Aimi), an asthma-stricken aspiring manga writer and older brother Shinji (Nagase Masatoshi), who abuses his wife Machiko (Nagasaku Hiromi). Now that the frustrated elder sister has come back (and eager to leave again though she has no money), tension within the family hits an all-time-high. Every member of the family has a dark secret and it leads to one event after another...
