We meet Maurice Torralba, a former member of the national volleyball team in his native Cuba, whose competitive career was cut short by injury. After marrying a Japanese woman he met in his homeland, he's now settled down in Miyazaki Prefecture where his athletic dream is alive and well, this time as a coach for elementary school children, high-schoolers and even a pro-level volleyball team. We also follow Taiwanese Huang Lian for a day in his work as a patterner of women's fashion in Tokyo.
