    • Synopsis
    • Moriguchi, a single-mother-teacher who recently broke off her engagement, reveals to her 7th grade class on the last day of school that she will not be returning next year to teach. She, then, confesses that the reason behind her resigning is the tragic death of her four-year-old daughter, Manami, who drowned in the school pool few months ago.
      “Manami didn’t die in an accident. She was killed by two students in this class.”
      Following the disturbing accusation, she avows that the students will pay for their action for the rest of their lives. Instead of seeking legal recourse, she will personally make sure that the killers never forget what they have done. Her first step was to mix HIV positive blood into the lunch milk, which they have already drunk hours before. As the students sit there in shock, Moriguchi leaves the class, already setting her next scheme in motion.
