The two of them are all alone in this world and are very poor; they live in a 40-year-old apartment (no bath, one room plus kitchen, 26000 yen rent). With dreams, hope, and economizing, they live in harmony. Indeed, today as well as tomorrow. Notes: • Their names mean "today" and "tommorrow" respectively. • 26000 yen is about 220 dollars.
