The Takazis' only daughter named Keiko was born seriously handicapped, deaf and dumb and mentally handicapped. Her parents tried to accept her handicap but their suffering continued.
Things changed after Keiko entered a deaf and dumb school. Not only Keiko but also her parents grew up with friendship and cooperation of the teachers and friends. They established a group named "Donguri" (acorn) to make a community workshop where the handicapped people could be independent.

"Donguri no Ie" is so real, so touching and yet soul-shattering. Crying out her name into your daughter's deaf ears... For you couldn't leave your beloved behind, wishing to end it together... Making innocence smile while shedding devoted tears... This is a part of the reality. A part that we even don't have a break to notice in our busy lives. This movie brings those people's out of sight struggles and tears and laughs... Right into our reality. This is the story of invincible fighters who gained victories against grief, under the roof of 'love'. A must-see for anyone who loves drama movies.
