Kaoruko and Kazuaki have two children and a troubled marriage. One day, their daughter almost drowns in a local swimming pool, left with little chance to recover. They have an agonising choice to make, which is further complicated when a young doctor offers the chance of a miracle cure through new technology. Lead actress Shinohara Ryoko was nominated for the Japanese Academy Award for her searing central performance.
