Spaghetti Code is a pejorative phrase for unstructured and difficult-to-maintain computer code caused by software programmers' insufficient ability and experience. Takeshi Maruyama, (director on Amazon Prime's 2015 action-drama series Final Life) makes his feature-length debut about the imperfect and flawed existence of young lives living in the city.

Shingo (Hiroya Shimizu) has garnered mass popularity on Facebook but has no real friends. Cocoro (Toko Miura) spends too much of her time with friends whom she doesn't actually like. Momoko (Mutsumi Sato) becomes addicted to telephone fortune telling after going through a break-up.

These young people make up three of the 13 interlinked stories in Maruyama's Spaghetti Code Love, each weaving in and out of one another to create a full picture of the difficulties of existing as a young person in modern Japan.
