The main character, Tsuboi Ryota, is a salaryman often criticized for being physically big, but with a “small” heart, and he is stuck in a dilemma of not really being able to fit in both at work and at home. But one day, his estranged father falls ill and with that, his “happy enough” life begins to change.
A mysterious beauty, a man who claims to know his father’s past appears, and his father begins to act in strange ways... It turns out, his father had been looking for the legendary “small creature” in his hometown! Though he doesn’t believe that it actually exists, he begins to meet with many people to uncover his father’s mystery, and slowly his feelings begin to change.
Maybe, no there’s no such thing...but just maybe...it really does exist?
“The world isn’t just made up of things that you can see”
Within the drama, using well-known creatures such as a koro-pok-guru, dwarf, and hobbit as a hint, an original story made just for the drama about a creature called ‘cuna’ will be unveiled. Through the existence of this “cuna”, we hope that people will be able to appreciate how “the power to believe in things we can’t see” such as, the importance of living in and sharing the nature, dreams, love, the bond we share with people, are connected to a happier tomorrow.
Ryota begins to look for the unthinkable thing “that he can’t see.” The big man with a small heart starts on his big journey to find the small creature, and eventually Ryota and his family, all the people he meets, becomes embroiled in this big mess. Will he be able to catch this “cuna”?
At the end of everything, what will he discover...? --Fuji TV
