Tokyo native, Ren, visits the small town where his sister has been teaching only to learn of her murder. Akakawa is a vaguely sinister town where everyone has a secret and odd coincidences occur. Ren is asked to fill Keiko’s position in the cram school. He is also offered a room in the home where she had been living (rent-free) with a politician and his unstable wife. Ren befriends another teacher and endeavors to learn the reason for his sister’s murder. He is also pursued by a beautiful and troubled teen student who tests his professional (and moral) boundaries.
