To the You After 20 Years: A Yume no Tobira Special Drama
Synopsis (Translation, Source: http://www.tbs.co.jp/20nengo/story/)
Yuichiro Sawada (Kiichi Nakai) is an elite salaryman engaged in overseas business infrastructure. He has a beautiful wife good at cooking, an older son Daichi (Kei Tanaka) who graduated from Todai and works for the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and a daughter Mariko (Shiori Tsuna) who is currently doing an exchange program at Washington University. He did not doubt his smooth sailing life and believed his incoming promotion.
But, Yuichiro’s business trip to Bangladesh will change him.
Bangladesh, a country at the east of India is just 1/4 of Japan’s size. They hold the world’s biggest population density, with a hundred fifty million people. Half of their people live with just 80 yen below a day, it is Asia’s poorest country.
One day, while visiting Bangladesh for a business trip, Yuichiro encounters his daughter Makiko, whom he thought was in America. Mariko told his dad that with the influence of an NGO organizer aiding Bangladesh kids, Ishikawa (Mukai Osamu), she has come to the country to do volunteer work. Mariko’s dream, she said was, “I wanna do something to make the people in Bangaladesh rich”. However, her dad one-sidedly opposes this. Without thinking, Mariko breaks to his dad about the brooding discontent she, her brother and her mom has on him.
Yuichiro goes back to Japan, and he hears from his wife that his son Daichi, has also quit his job in the Ministry a year ago and has been doing part-time jobs and studying design ever since. His wife raised that “I wanna support my child’s dream”, leaving Yuichiro devastated.
After all those years of marriage, Yuichiro gets a confession from his wife that she wants to try and live her own life.
The next day, Yuichiro goes to visit his son while working for Nakayama Landscaping. The manager, Nakayama, strives to make a wall out of natural rocks while Daichi has dreams to make the ‘strongest wall’ there is.
With all these things happening, Yuichiro finds out he has cancer. He thought he has been desperately working his life for his family, yet now they’re all separated.
With the little time he got left, he decides to support his family’s dream.
Manufacturing made in Bangledesh bags, constructing the strongest wall there is, creating the most delicious vegetable… With all his heart, he breaks all the boundaries, chases his dreams and opens up to the future.

It’s already the rainy season~
How is everyone spending theirs?
As for me, I get to take a break from all the shoots here and abroad that I’ve been doing since March.
At last I could stay home and spend time leisurely..
Lately, I was in Nagano for Summer Rescue’s shoot.
Today’s picture was taken at Suwa Lake.
I’m relieved that the shoot on location finished before the rainy season started.
But I’ve been around nature during those shoots and I felt really good with all the fresh air.
Now, we have yet another shoot on the mountains.
I say, this will be an energy conserving shoot.
I went to Bangladesh last month and it was 37.8 degrees, compared with this, it has about 20 degrees of difference maybe?
And yesterday, we had the postrecording for the film “I Must Buy New Shoes” which was shot in Paris!
It was nostalgic!
I didn’t get to watch everything, but the film and music was wonderful.
I wonder how it will come up in the end.
I am looking forward to it.
