Synopsis: A pregnant Kido Eriko (Kikuchi Maiko) is brought to Hamanami City Medical Centre by ambulance. Beside her, her husband Shuji (Magy), who is a Diet member, rants at the ambulance crew. Izumi Rin (Kuroki Hitomi), an obstetrician, briskly comes to Eriko. At that moment, Satonaka Kosuke (Tsukamoto Takashi) arrives at the centre dressed in a suit for his first day as a houseman. He starts to greet Rin, but she interrupts and makes him come along for Eriko’s treatment. Eriko’s water has broken and a small baby slips into Rin’s hands. Eriko is unsettled by the sight of her baby who weighs less than 1 kg. Rin tells her not to worry as Hamanami City Medical Centre has an excellent neonatal intensive care unit.

It occurs to Rin that they could have undergone infertility treatment with an ovulation-inducing drug, and she suspects the possibility of a mistake in in vitro fertilisation because of some accident. Although Eriko denies having had in vitro fertilisation, Rin finds out that she had gone to Seo Clinic for infertility treatment. Rin goes to see the doctor Seo Hideaki (Kuroda Arthur) to determine if there was a mistake in the in vitro fertilisation and if he had slipped into the hospital to try to kill Eriko’s baby but … …
