“The baby was born with Down Syndrome.”
After four years of infertility treatment, the twins were supposed to be the “long-awaited child”. Instead, the Tanabe couple are now parents to children with disabilities and are begging Saito and his Instructor to let their children die. Saito tries to repel towards Takasago, who considers their death inevitable unless they convince the couple. Would the parents be forgiven for this act - the act of determining the life of their children? What dominates the minds of the parents, and what makes Takasago think the way he does? Saito struggles between his justice and the realities of neonatology in Japan.
