Taking madness as a metaphor for the turmoil of post-war Japan, Ichikawa devises surreal compositions and situations to satirize the stress, inefficiency, and corruption of the corporate culture that was emerging from the Japanese "economic miracle". A young graduate works at a brewery where he is taught to do nothing but to never look idle. When his mother goes insane, and he has to send money for medical research into her condition, he is caught in a series of mishaps that leaves him at the bottom of the heap in the booming economy.
