The year is 1934. Demand for the automobile is at last beginning to heat up some 10 plus years after the devastation of the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 had utterly destroyed shipping and distribution networks. Now, the likes of U.S auto making giants, Ford and General Motors, were looking to carve up the Japanese market for themselves with their foreign-made automobiles. Wataru Yamazaki is sales manager for “Hinode Motors”, a GM dealership in Aichi Prefecture. Resistant to the misguided American sales techniques being forced upon him, he constantly tries to offer suggestions, but who’s going to listen to a salesman at one little dealership? One his way home from Osaka one day, Yamazaki sees a stalled Chevrolet atop the Suzuka mountain pass being fixed by a mechanic in a suit: Saichiro Aichi. It marks the beginning of a long and rich relationship between two men who would go on to launch the first Aichi Motor Automobile Dealership.
1934년, 10년전 관동대지진으로 물류운송망이 단절된 힘든 경험으로 일본의 자동차수요는 급속히 가열되었다. 유 럽세력과 함께 미국의 포드, 제너럴모터스(GM)의 본격적인 참여에 의해 일본시장은 바야흐로 외국차판매의 전국 시대에 돌입했다. 아이치에 있는 GM자동차판매점 「히노데모터스」의 지배인 야마자키 와타루는 미국방식의 판매방 침을 강요당하는 것에 저항하며 무슨일이 일어날때마다 개선을 호소해왔다. 하지만, 오사카에 거점을 둔「일본제너 럴모터스」는 일개 판매점 의견에 귀를 기울여주는 일은 없었다. 오사카에서 집으로 향하던 야마자키는 스즈카 언덕 의 산길에서 멈춰버린 시보레를 양복을 입은채 수리하는 남자 아이치 사이치로를 만난다. 이것이 아이치 자동차 판매 점 제1호가 되고 사이치로를 지지해준 야마자키 와타루와 사이치로의 운명의 만남이 되었다.

Giving birth is not an illness. So naturally, it is not covered by standard medical insurance. People who work in maternity wards don’t treat injuries or cure disease. In fact, a professional doctor, an obstetrician, need not be present at a childbirth. But when complications arise, giving birth can become a life-or-death matter. Sakura Konotori lost his mother at his own birth and, as a result, grew up in an orphanage. Now he works as an obstetrician fueled by a deep love and yearning to “celebrate each and every baby that comes into the world”. But he is also something of a mystery, leading another life as a concert pianist who goes by the nickname “Baby” and plays with a passion that borders on brilliance. A delicate and realistic portrayal about the front lines of childbirth, Storks delivers a heartwarming drama that reflects upon the meaning and miracle of life.
