On a typical day, driving through the big city moloch that is Tokyo in the "To Do" company truck, Miyu can be sure to encounter a tragic fate. Miyu is small and delicate, but don't be fooled – her job is not for the faint of heart. Last year, she was called to more than 90 apartments in which people died alone. Miyu cleared them out, cleaned them up and handed them back over. She met with the bereaved, sent prayers and prepared the funeral, always striving to bring everyone peace. 

Her own father died a lonely death too, and maybe Miyu wants to make amends. Despite her unwavering cheerfulness, a lot is going on in her mind, and she doesn't remain untouched by the fates she encounters – the loneliness, the coldness of relationships, the heavy burdens. 

Miyu captures her thoughts in detailed, shoebox-sized dioramas of the apartments as she found them. Hours and days of almost meditative meticulous work go by, to recreate the orderly apartment of a suicide victim, the neglected flat of a cancer patient or the tiny room of someone, who was too afraid to go outside. All of Miyu's memories, her affection, her desire to heal, are embedded in these lovingly detailed creations. They are artistic contemplations on significant issues. Abstract enough, to not look away; powerful enough, to draw you in. 

The film "To Do" will observe and accompany Miyu through all this. Cleaning the apartments, talking to the relatives and finally, reflecting on human relationships, while working on her precious miniatures. Miyu does, what has to be done. She enjoys her job, but she would also like to not have to drive through the streets of Tokyo as often as she does.
