Harry runs an old-fashioned coffee shop that he took over from his grandfather. During a year-end cleaning, he finds a disposable camera with a few shots remaining. He shows it to Ei, a university student studying Japanese culture, and Sheila, a café regular and kimono researcher. This sparks a discussion about disposable cameras and the experiences they capture. Using a drama format, we examine its history and renewed popularity in this digital age. We also look at the instant camera, its popularity across generations, and the new value that analogue culture presents.
