    • Synopsis
    • One day, Fumiko Tashiro runs into Ryota Saeki - an old acquaintance from college - outside the municipal library where she works. Brought together by chance, they find themselves drawn to one another, and before long they are set to get married. They make their preparations for the wedding, envisioning their happy future together. But all the while, Ryota is troubled by his own secret ability to see the dead. He becomes increasingly worn out by his everyday encounters with ghosts. They cause a rupture in his life with Fumiko, which slowly begins to crumble. One day, Ryota meets Sae Kimura, a woman with the same ability as him, who is terrified by the apparitions. Ryota becomes increasingly involved with Sae, as if to run away from his failing relationship with Fumiko, until he wakes up one morning to find his ability gone. Now unable to see the ghosts, Ryota is shocked to realize that he had depended on his traumatic ability all along. He decides to get away from Fumiko, from Sae, from everything. Fumiko too accepts their break-up, and decides to begin a new life. The couple heads towards the breaking point. But the miracle, once set in motion, is not going to allow them to part ways.
