OW is set in the suburban home of the Suzuki family, which includes a middle-aged father hiding his recent unemployment, an adult son never employed to begin with and correspondingly given to sleeping late, a grandmother nearing dementia, and a mother who’s growing quietly exhausted minding the family’s daily clockwork machinations. In short, this family a typical middle-class clan, in an era in which such a status is ever more difficult to maintain.
