Did you ever go on a holiday which disappoints you? Your expectations and nostalgia enter your memories and push you in an unknown direction? Tanaka dreams about Europe. But what was to be a perfect tour of a Japanese group around Europe had a tragic end. The film told a personal story by 8mm film footage of Japanese touristic films from 1969.
