But when he falls in love with a fellow law student, Sawa Tachibana (Kawaguchi Haruna), he finds happiness for the first time in over a decade. As the couple plans their marriage, a stranger threatens to reveal everything about his darkest secret. How far will Sawa go to accept Rei after his secret is exposed?
