In a hectic city of 35 million, Kumiko feels devastatingly alone. Trapped in isolating psychological torment, Kumiko lives in constant resentment of her dead-end job, her demeaning boss, and her relentlessly nagging mother. But her spirits lift when, in a fictional American film, she observes a man bury a satchel of money in the wintry Midwestern wilderness. With little more than a self-made treasure map, Kumiko sets off on an epic, unpredictable journey towards the icy plains of Minnesota to unearth her fortune.
