    • Synopsis
    • An architect father, a stay-at-home mother who works as a proofreader, a son who has given up on his soccer career due to injury, and a daughter who is studying hard in order to enter high school. They are no doubt an ordinary family living in the suburbs, until the son goes missing after a high school student’s dead body is found in the trunk of a car involved in a traffic accident. Three people related to the murder case are still missing; two fugitives escape from the scene, while the third person’s situation is unknown. Is the family’s missing son one of the two fugitives? Or is he the “third person” that could as well be the victim? The father cannot accept the former but the mother hopes her son will survive even if he was the murderer. The presence of these two competing “hopes” gradually begins to cause dissonance in the family.
