Middle-aged alcoholic Gin, teenage runaway Miyuki and former drag queen Hana are a trio of houseless people surviving as a makeshift family on the streets of Tokyo.

With only a handful of clues to the baby's identity, the three misfits search the streets of Tokyo for help in returning the baby to its parents.
