    • Synopsis
    • Have you heard of a rumor about a person who arranges a meeting between you and the dead?
      The Connector that appears before skeptical requestors is an ordinary high school student, Ayumi. Hatada, a scornful middle-aged man, wishes to see his mother who died of cancer. Schoolgirl Arashi has a question she wants to ask her best friend, who she had a falling out with and died in a bicycle accident before they could make up.
      Businessman Tsuchiya continues to believe in and wait for his girlfriend, who disappeared right after he proposed to her. Ayumi, actually an apprentice Connector who is being trained by his grandmother starts questioning himself as he meets these people and arranges their meetings. Isn’t it self-serving of the living person to want to meet with the deceased? Perhaps they’re better off not seeing them. Will the living person really be saved by the meeting? Will it change their lives? And as for the deceased......
      The doubts are soon directed towards the mysterious death of his own parents.
