Tokyo no yado / An Inn in Tokyo (1935) DVD5
For three days the almost penniless Kihachi and his young boys Zenko and Shoko travel on foot across Tokyo's industrial wasteland looking for work but are unable to find any. On the road they meet a starving widow Otaka and her little daughter Kimiko in the same predicament and befriend them. Kihachi has a tough time feeding the kids and getting shelter for them until luckily he runs into his old friend Otsune, who runs a cafe. She finds him a job, and for the next ten days Kihachi is as happy as he's ever been in life. He catches up again with Otaka working as a waitress in an inn. He learns that Kimiko has dysentery and he tries to help pay the hospital bills by borrowing from Otsune, but failing that he steals the money from a rich bar and his boys deliver it to Otaka at the hospital. Kihachi then pleads with Otsune to look after his boys, as he walks to a police station to surrender.

The final installment of Yasujiro Ozu's ("An Autumn Afternoon", "Early Autumn", "Floating Weeds") "Kihachi Trilogy," as written by Masao Arata and Tadao Ikeda.
