【The Art of Food】
Hanako Imamura, who lives in Oyamazaki-cho in the southern tip of Kyoto Prefecture, is an artist who creates "food art" using leftovers from dinner. Her mother, Chiza, who is the discoverer of this unique art, has been photographing Hanako's "works" for six years. On the other hand, her father Yasunobu, who has just retired, still thinks Hanako's art is "dirty leftovers".

【This is the story of the family surrounding her.】
Hanako goes to the work center (Otokuni Himawarien) every day, and on weekends she enjoys painting classes, playing basketball, and going out with her father. Her mother plays tennis, her father plays the shamisen, and the Imamura family's daily life remains unchanged. Momoko, the older sister who is now determined to leave the Imamura family, talks about her daily conflict with Hanako. In the midst of all this, Hanako continues to create "food art" by herself, day in and day out. This is the story of one artist, Hanako Imamura, and the family that surrounds her.
