Shiraiwa, recently divorced and struggling, moves to Hakodate where he takes carpentry lessons at a vocational school. His divorce has left him with a psychological trauma, as is the case with many of his classmates who are in similar states of transition or trauma.  One of them named Kazuhisa takes him to a nightclub, in order to pitch him an idea for a joint business venture.  While there, he meets an eccentric hostess, Satoshi, who seems to like him immediately.  A peculiar relationship is initiated between them, as she borders on the manic and he is filled with self-pity. In the meantime, he and his classmates are also training for a baseball match between schools.

This tale of hard-found hope and tentative romance swept the Tama Movie Awards taking Best Picture and Best Lead Male and Female Performances.

「海炭市叙景」「そこのみにて光輝く」の原作者・佐藤泰志の芥川賞候補作を、オダギリジョー、蒼井優、松田翔太ら豪華キャスト競演で映画化。「苦役列車」の山下敦弘監督がメガホンをとり、原作者が職業訓練校に通った自身の体験を交えてつづった小説をもとに、それぞれ苦悩を抱える孤独な男女が共に生きていこうとする姿を描き出す。

妻に見限られて故郷・函館に戻った白岩は、職業訓練校に通いながら失業保険で生計を立て、訓練校とアパートを往復するだけの淡々とした毎日を送っていた。そんなある日、同じ訓練校に通う代島にキャバクラへ連れて行かれた白岩は、鳥の動きを真似する風変わりなホステス・聡と出会い、どこか危うさを抱える彼女に強く惹かれていく。
