Naturally, Hitomi is incensed and galled by the idea. But Hitomi soon finds out that her mother knows her intimately, for she has been corresponding with her mother all her life, believing her to be a childhood friend who moved away. As a result, Kanako knows all of HItomi’s closest-kept secrets, her innermost thoughts, everything about her upcoming marriage and even… that she was recently diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor that may ruin plans for the wedding. Hitomi makes every effort to resist her mother’s unsolicited intrusion into her life, but blood is thicker than water. And so begins the 100-day battle between a mother and daughter. Can it end well?
