Eight years ago, Kaoru Shiratori's nine-year-old daughter Yuka was kidnapped and brutally killed. Then, his wife Naomi committed suicide. Shiratori had lost meaning in his life until Dr. Numata, a close friend of his late father, invents a time machine. Shiratori uses it to visit the world that existed eight years ago to save his daughter and wife.
Once he leaves for the past, he can never return to the present. Even so, he wanted to go back. Arriving in the past, he is tossed by the twists and turns of fate. Can Shiratori save Yuka from the vicious criminal Yoshida? Please do not tell anyone about this surprise ending.
