Tony Takitani is a simple, undemanding mechanical draftsman who lives a lonely existence. His mother died shortly after he was born, and his father is a jazz musician who is rarely around. But when Tony meets the young and beautiful Eiko, he falls for her instantly, despite their 15-year age difference. Their friendship slowly develops into love, and Tony soon discovers that Eiko is a shopaholic who cannot stop buying clothing. When tragedy strikes, Tony is forced to look at his life in a whole different way. Based on a short story published in The New Yorker, written by Japanese best-selling author Haruki Murakami (Norwegian Wood, Kafka On The Shore).
