They want to know how he has been living and if they should forgive him. Saeki is ordered to take on the case because of the agency’s financial difficulties, but he understands the extent of the couple’s pain. 15 years ago, his beloved older sister was assaulted and killed as she was returning home with a cake on his birthday.
