Toshio leads a quiet life with his wife Akie and ten year old daughter Hotaru until one day he is visited by an old acquaintance who's just gotten out of jail. To his wife's initial dismay, Toshio offers the man a job at his factory and invites him to stay at their house. And as the guest continues to invade their personal space, it becomes clear that his intentions are not quite what he first let on. Starting out as a traditional Japanese family drama, HARMONIUM expertly manipulates audience expectations to create something far more surprising and unique.
