A film adaptation of the TV series which depicts the journey of a middle-aged man with a two-month old puppy in search of his mother who has run away from home. One day Jiro, a 35-year old unemployed male who has never stepped out of his town, runs into Ichiro, a Mameshiba puppy with a red scarf around its neck. Ichiro turns out to be a puppy Jiro's runaway mother had sent for her family to come looking for her.
