The long-awaited dramatization of Kiyoshi Shigematsu’s million bestseller and winner of the Naoki Literature prize, Second Chance Chauffeur begins with a man taking a ride in a car as he seeks to embark on a life do-over. But the drive sends him toggling supernaturally between past and future where he encounters his father. Both of the same age, the two forge an odd relationship that is neither father-son nor two friends. Kazuo (Hidetoshi Nishijima) is a staid and serious man who lost his family for failing to notice a dark illness that afflicted his wife. His father (Teruyuki Kagawa), on the other hand, was a freewheeling, passionate entrepreneur who built many successful businesses in the course of an illustrious career. Together, the two embark on a spiritual journey that prompts Kazuo to mature as a father and reach a place that will provide encouragement to all.

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.
