Toki is fed up with the men on the Tokyo subway molesting her with their faces masked. One morning, Toki gets on the train wearing a bird mask to punish men. Her actions immediately go viral, and many women begin to imitate her. The director portrays a serious social issue and women’s solidarity against male violence in a witty and thoughtful way.
