Synopsis: Kaji Hideki (Katsumura Masanobu) was ousted from Totei University Hospital and invited to the prestigious Seikyo University Hospital as a visiting associate professor. He meets Nasu Koichi (Sato Ryuta), a senior associate professor who is the private hospital’s best surgeon and also very well regarded by fellow doctors as well as patients. Nasu not only has ample surgical achievements but has published many papers too. Even though he looks set to be the next professor, he shows completely no interest in power and puts his patients first. Kaji does not find the squeaky clean Nasu fascinating.
