At Tsuneo's workplace, a frequent topic of conversation is the old woman who walks around town pushing a buggy, the contents of which nobody knows. As Tsuneo is out walking his boss's dog one morning, he runs across the old woman and her runaway buggy, which he stops, giving him the chance to look inside.
