Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
Summer in 1997, Aoi (Kaya Kiyohara) is a 17-year-old girl. She begins to work at a maternity hospital as an apprentice nurse. She witnesses an abortion with her own eyes and becomes shocked. The hospital staff, including Director Tomohiro Yui (Koji Seto), nurse Sayako Mochizuki (Asami Mizukawa) and chief nurse Mie Sakaki (Mieko Harada), all support each other. Aoi’s mother Fumika (Wakana Sakai) is worried about Aoi’s poor communication skills, but Aoi approaches pregnant women with tenderness and her own unique sensitivity.
