Documentary director Yuko is putting together a TV segment about bereaved families connected to the suicide of a schoolgirl who had been badly bullied. Determined to shed light on the truth, Yuko’s uncompromising nature brings her into conflict with conservative-minded management at the television network, but she succeeds in getting her interview subjects to emerge from their shells and place their trust in her. But when Yuko discovers that her father Masashi, a cram-school teacher, has made a grave error of judgment with one his students, she finds herself with a new perspective on the news story as a close relative of the “victimizer.”
