Double Trouble

SYNOPSIS

Set in a small town somewhere in Japan, the trouble begins when Iizuka (Kaoru Kobayashi), a manager of a local cultural center, realizes the center's concert hall has been double-booked for two all-housewives chorus groups on New Year's Eve. The lazy and usually irresponsible Iizuka tries to make both concerts happen. Finely colored by famous chorus songs such as "Danny Boy" and "Ode to Joy", this drama humorously depicts friction between different states of life and family relationship.
