Ren heads to Akakawa to conclude his sister's affairs, still failing to understand why... she chose to abandon the family and Tokyo for this desolate town years ago.As he comes to know the figures in Akakawa, from the enigmatic politician to his fellow teachers and a rebellious, alluring student named Rio, Ren delves into his shared childhood with Keiko and what followed, trying to piece together what happened the night of her death.
