A public official eventually comes to visit and tells Tetsuo, “You died three years ago.” The news on TV and the internet is filled with a string of stories about the resurrection of people who are supposedly dead all over the world. However, Tetsuo has no memory of his own death. It is said that he fell from the rooftop of his company but he is frustrated that he has absolutely no recollection whether his death was an accident or suicide. Why did he have to die and leave his beloved wife and young son behind? While tring to find the reason, Tetsuo remembers being shadowed by the security guard Saeki when he was still alive. He pursues the truth as the mystery deepens. However, Chika seems to be hiding something. Each person’s dark side is revealed little by little.
