Summary
Over 5 million senior citizens live by themselves in Japan. Now, the reality is that increasing numbers of them who need care are unable to live out their final days peacefully in one place. They're not permitted to stay in either hospitals or care facilities and end up drifting from place to place. There are some free or low-cost lodgings that were previously homeless shelters and psychiatric hospitals which will temporarily accept patients with dementia, but many seniors have lost any control over their own lives. This program depicts the reality of Japan's "drifting" seniors tossed by the winds of fate - a fate that could befall on anyone.
