SynopsisOffice worker Mariko is flustered to learn that her boyfriend, Junichi, has suddenly left the country to work overseas as a volunteer educating children in developing countries. He’ll be gone for 2 years, and made his big decision without having consulted her and even his own family. The reasons are unclear, and he is unreachable by phone. All Mariko can do is write a letter to him expressing her anxieties. Then one morning, the burnt body of a woman is found in a lumber warehouse. Visiting the crime scene, a detective named Kameyama recalls a similar arson related homicide that occurred 15 years ago at the same warehouse. Flashback 15 years. Mariko was in middle school when the warehouse fire broke out, trapping her and one of her classmates, Kazuki inside. Thankfully, she was rescued at the last minute by Junichi who rushed to save her, but alas, Kazuki perished. But the incident was investigated as a homicide, and another of Mariko’s classmates, a boy named Yasutaka, had been named as a suspect. The day after the fire, however, he committed suicide. With the truth never having been revealed, the investigation broke off much to the remorse of detective Kameyama. Mariko is therefore astounded 15 years later when she learns that the woman recently found burned to death was Yasutaka’s mother, Ayako. Years ago, the shock of the tragedy had led to Mariko's amnesia about the incident. Now, Mariko finally receives a letter from Junichi overseas, and it contains a confession by Junichi spelling out things Mariko had never known. Gradually, Mariko, overcome with anxiety finds bits and pieces of her memory starting to return.
국제봉사자를 지원한 준이치는 앞으로 2년동안 돌아오지 않는다. 그런 중요한 일을 준이치는 자신과 가족에게도 상의하지 않은채 떠나버렸다. 준이치와 전화도 되지않자 마리코는 불안한 마음을 편지에 담는다. 어느날 목재창고에서 여성의 소사체가 발견되고, 형사 카메야마의 뇌리를 스치는 것은 15년전 같은 장소에서 일어난 방화살인이었다. 창고안에는 당시 중학생이었던 마리코와 친 구 카즈키가 갇히고 마리코는 준이치에 의해 구출되지만 카즈키는 사망한다. 방화살인으로 수사가 진행되고 마리코의 친구인 야스 타카가 혐의를 받지만, 그는 다음날 자살한다. 진상은 해명되지 않은채 수사는 종결되고 카메야마는 그 결말에 후회했다. 죽은 여 성은 야스타카의 어머니였다. 보도에 놀라는 마리코. 사실 마리코는 15년전의 쇼크로 사건의 기억을 잊고 있었다. 때마침 준이치 의 어떤 고백이 씌여진 편지가 도착하고 차츰 불안에 짓눌리는 마리코는 15년전의 기억이 단편적으로 되살아나기 시작한다.
