Story: Miura Azusa’s (Hirose Alice) family runs a cleaning shop. One day, a mysterious woman (Seki Megumi) dressed entirely in black strolls into the shop. She wants them to get rid of the chocolate stains on her T-shirt. While the chocolate can probably be removed immediately, the stains will be difficult. In the meantime, the stains start to take the shape of human faces and Azusa’s father Goro (Miyakawa Ichirota) suddenly dies. Seeing the situation at that moment, Azusa gets the feeling that her parents have been hiding something from her. When she confronts her mother Yasuko (Yamaguchi Kaori), she learns that her father committed a murder in the past in order to save a friend and this was covered up. Then she discovers that she was also personally involved in this incident. There is an unexpected development in the story. What will Azusa’s fate be?

Story: Matsuda Haruka (Anne) is a doctor who works hard. Her father Toru (Yamada Meikyo) has just passed away and she comes to the crematorium to be with her family. Haruka’s younger brother Koichi (Matsushita Kohei) is slightly bitter that she is issuing instructions about work on her mobile phone while she is beside the grieving family. The situation changes just as their father’s body is cremated. It turns out that he cannot be burned. Even though everything has been burned, the body remains. An employee (Minagawa Sarutoki) at the crematorium suggests that he might have some regrets and the extended family struggles to figure out a possible reason. Even when they think they have solved it and try to cremate the body again, it still will not burn.
