Former yakuza named Sakura Haruo has just finished serving time in jail for murder. He did it for money he needed in order to get his sick girlfriend operated in a hospital. After he was released, he found out that his girlfriend had already passed away and not a single company wanted to employ such a man as himself, because of his criminal record. Amongst all this, a little girl showed up in his life with a picture of his girlfriend in her schoolbag. She called her 'mama'.
The two are representing a very similar story about a father who gets to know his child. Of course, the situations are not the same at all, but in the end both are quite interesting life and family genre dramas with some warm hearting scenes, some sad ones, and some that you can't help but remember.
