Set in the 1980's when internal organ transplants where considered taboo.
Tetsuhiko Toma (Hideaki Takizawa) is a surgeon who studied in the United States. He begins work at a private hospital in a rural area in Japan. He believes that people should receive the same level of care at all hospitals. Guided by those principles, he takes on challenging surgeries and saves the lives of patients. Tetsuhiko Toma attempts an internal organ transplant for the first time in Japan, but the health care system blocks him.
