The drama which consists of 6 episodes and describes what happens 9 years after the "Mohouhan" case, features Nakama as report writer Maehata Shigeko who tries to get to the bottom of a new case involving the Doizakis, a couple who killed their 15-year-old body and hid her body under their house for 16 years. When she meets a housewife Hagiya Toshiko who claims that her 10-year-old son Hitoshi can see other people's memories, she is shocked to see one of Hitoshi's drawings resembling what happened in the Doizakis' case. Just when she wants to find out more about Hitoshi, the boy dies in a traffic accident. At the same time, the Doizakis engage lawyer Takahashi Harumi (Kuroki Hitomi) to carry out the legal procedure of disowning their second daughter Seiko (Kaho) who is bewildered by their actions.
