Plot synopsis

The film is based on the true story of science fiction writer Taku Mayumura (Tsuyoshi Kusanagi) whose wife (Yuko Takeuchi) died of colon cancer in 2002. After a doctor told him laughter can help the immune system, Mayumura began writing one story of at least 3 pages every day for his cancer-stricken wife. Although the initial prognosis was that she would only survive one year, she went on to live 5 good years with the help of the 1,778 total stories written by her husband for her over that time.
