Synopsis
Narusawa Haruto, the CEO of game company Harukana Online Games, is hailed as the man who created a new era for the game industry. He has a house in Shonan in Kamakura where he lives with his beautiful wife Michiru, whom he met during his university days, and their daughter Yuka who is of elementary school. While there is a sense of something complicated between Haruto and Michiru, he seems to have it all. That is until Haruto receives a phone call one day that completely changes his life. Yuka has been kidnapped and her abductors demand 500 million yen in ransom, a sum he cannot immediately stump up. An investigation task force is quickly formed at Kanagawa Prefectural Police after Haruto reports her kidnapping, and the police including Katsuragi Keishi and the chief of the First Investigation Division, Yoshino Eitaro, arrive at the Narusawas’ residence. Grasping at straws, Michiru contacts Miwa Aoi and Todo Itsuki who have been their friends since university days. The desperate situation puts the family’s ties to the test. Haruto and Michiru face a number of trials with the loss of their most precious child. They eventually realise after a series of challenges and revelations about people that the only way to get Yuka back is not through the police, but to join hands to fight against the kidnappers. Will the two of them be able to get their daughter back safely and have a happy ending?
