One evening, a man stands at subway platform ready to jump off when the next train arrives. During this time, two by-standers (Ryo Kase & Yukie Nakama) both sense the man’s intentions and pushes him away before he can kill himself. The man then claims to have had no such intentions but these two by-standers know better. Although complete strangers, the two by-standers both carry deep emotional scars. The man lives with his father and grandfather, while the women lives with her parents and grandmother. Now these two seemingly normal people, but intrinsically wounded souls, grow closer as their lives begin to change.
