Synopsis: It is the 100th anniversary of the founding of Dogami General Hospital next year and its hospital director Moriyama Suguru (Takashima Masanobu) is in discussion with advertising companies about a commemoration ceremony. He invites the governor of Tokyo and even popular artists with the intention of making it a grand celebration. As expected, Hanamura Reiko (Ishida Hikari), the manager of Tokyo Yotsuba Bank’s Loans Division, flatly refuses a loan worth 14 million yen for the event. In fact, two years ago Moriyama had brushed aside objections from the people around him and attempted to dig a hot spring. But there was no hot spring in the end.

Hiraga Yoji (Hashimoto Jun), a section head in the Loans Division who cannot stand Reiko, approaches Moriyama. He hints at the possibility that the decision making authority will be transferred to him and gets Moriyama to divulge the name of Reiko’s illness. Reiko’s diagnosis does not change no matter which hospital she goes to. She feels depressed to be ordered by Mitazawa, who has heard about her medical condition from Hiraga, to focus on medical treatment and not worry about work. Sagara reaches out to Reiko and reports to Moriyama that the hospital will take her in. But Moriyama is suddenly vehemently opposed to it.
