    • Synopsis
    • Asahi, who hails from the remote Goto Islands, earns his living as a boxing trainer at a gym in Tokyo, and is planning to marry Kaori soon. Asahi invites his childhood friend Hiroto to Tokyo and finds a job for him. The contract is signed and everything seems fine, but months later, Hiroto tells Asahi that he has been scammed. Asahi wants to postpone his wedding, deeply distressed, as he tries to help Hiroto first. After all, they grew up together like brothers, in an orphanage. But Kaori wants her ailing grandmother to be at the wedding, as soon as possible. Which family member should Asahi prioritize? His “brother” or his future wife?
