A dramatization of a work by Japan's undisputed queen of mystery and perenially popular author, Miyuki Miyabe. Saburo Sugimura is employed in the public relations sections of huge conglomerate, Imada Corporation. when he receives an odd request from his father-in-law, Yoshichika Imada, the company chairman. The favor has something to do with looking into the tragic death of the chairman's personal driver, Nobuo Kajita, who had been an enthusiastic supporter of Sugimura's marriage to the chairman's daughter. While Sugimura hopes the death was nothing more than an accident, new facts come to light that point instead to foul play. All people have "poison" in their hearts in varying quantities, and Sugimura finds that Kajita's death may have been the result of the daily gradual spread of secretly-harbored poison of the heart. Here then ensues a genuine psycho thriller that brings the varied drama of the human condition into bold relief.

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.
