Synopsis
Ando, the head of prestigious Izumida Hospital, drafts Takashi, a battle-hardened and brilliant surgeon. On his first day, he meets Detective Mizusawa who has brought in a critically injured criminal whom she was forced to shoot. Against the wishes of his superior, Takashi miraculously saves the criminal. Takashi learns of another patient in the hospital that has been in a coma for 21 years. Takashi suggests a way he may be able to revive the man, but is stubbornly opposed by Ando. This arouses Takashi's suspicions that Ando may have a personal stake in keeping the patient in a vegetative state; and he and Detective Mizusawa set out to unravel the mystery behind this 21-year old incident and ultimately learn more about their mutual past in the process.
