Cat pupa

A seemingly blunt man named Yasushi lives on Sanagi(pupa) Island in the Seto Inland Sea, which is famous as a cat island.
One day, Yasushi meets a woman named Hanako who wanders around the island soaking wet.
She asks him to find a "bag" that she had lost after dropping it in the sea.
Chika, a childhood friend of Yasushi, and her husband Kiyoshi, who was returning home at the time, happen to find a mysterious round capsule-shaped "bag" on the beach.
What they find inside is an unbelievably large wad of cash...
