On the day of his 47th birthday, Tetsuo meets Reika, who lives alone, but there are bruises on her face from being beaten, clearly indicating that something has happened. Worried about Reika, who doesn’t answer his questions, Tetsuo secretly visits her daughter’s apartment and finds her turbulent boyfriend, Nobuto Matori, there. Tetsuo immediately hides in a closet, but learns that Nobuto once beat his ex-girlfriend to death and is planning to harm Reika as well. For the sake of his beloved family, Tetsuo takes a certain action.
