He enjoys life in the affluent seaside town of Kamakura and lives with his wife and daughter who attend an elementary school. However, tragedy befalls this happy family when his daughter is kidnapped. Haruto must now face numerous hardships as he navigates through the complex web of human nature that begins to show its ugliness. The only way to save his beloved daughter is to take matters into his own hands without the police’s involvement and, together with his wife, stand against the kidnappers.
