Harashima Nobuko and Yamanouchi Toyonori: two suicides. Two lives at the extreme ends of the Japanese health system: the former is ill, a victim whose rights for compensation are contested; the latter is a senior civil servant in charge of the compensation who refuses the policy decided for a serious medical scandal.

Through encounters with their closed relatives, However endeavours to understand what brought both of them to the brink of suicide.
