Her Love Boils Bathwater

Futaba lives in a small town with her daughter Azumi. Their house connects to the family-run bathhouse, which has been closed since husband and father Kazuhiro left the family for another woman. Everything changes when Futaba is diagnosed with terminal cancer, giving her only months to live. Newly determined, she decides she is going to make the most of her remaining time by reuniting her family and reopening the closed bathhouse. It’s a journey that will lead to new friends, some surprising additions to the family, and even a few long-secret revelations coming to light...
