Trading company employee, Tetsuya, lives alone with his only daughter, but is busy preparing to remarry a Vietnamese woman named Lien. One day, the president of a Vietnamese trading company promises Tetsuya a contract if he will help solve a mystery. But there is a time limit that, if not met, will cause the dissolution of a big project in Vietnam his company has been working on for years. Tetsuya pours his energy into cracking the mystery, but the key to solving it lies in Japan. A hundred years ago, under harsh colonial rule by the French, a Vietnamese hero fighting for independence took an incredible risk to find passage to Japan, where he forged a strong bond with a nameless Japanese doctor. Now, a century later, a long-hidden truth is re-vealed in this epic story about love and friendship between Vietnam and Japan.
