Shawn seems to have found his footing in a country he longed to live for a long time, establishing his video production company, but with a partner, Kin, who hasn't  assimilated himself as efficiently. Money doesn't seem to be an issue, but perhaps making real personal connections is. Not just for both of these individuals, but also for Malcolm. He has lost his long time girlfriend, and it doesn’t seem he will get her back, so he loses himself in the fantasy of arcades, not being able to find the warmth of reality in an often cold city. These three, like the rest of the characters, have left their native homes in hopes of finding themselves, or perhaps one another. Some have, some haven't, whilst journeying to the realization that they must be at peace within before extending peace beyond. This is a day in the life of a select few foreigners, or "gaikokujin" in Japanese, living in one of the most populous cities in the world, yet all intricately connected in some cosmic way.
