The movie is the 26th feature film based on the manga series created by Yoshito Usui, and follows the comedic misadventures of Shinnosuke “Shin-chan” Nohara, a mischievous five-year-old who often says inappropriate things and cannot resist pretty ladies, regardless of their age. Shin-chan’s family includes his baby sister Himawari, their mother Misae who gets hysterical whenever her two kids are misbehaving in public, dad Hiroshi, an average office worker who has smelly feet, and their pet dog Shiro.
