There was a legendary ramen shop in Tokyo and the owner, Kazuo Yamagishi, was known as "The God of Ramen". There was always a two-hour wait in line to partake of his noodles.

The shop, full of many memories of his wife, was torn down. And therein lies the drama. This is a look at the passage of 10 years in the life of "The God of Ramen", Kazuo Yamagishi.
