Machiko, one of the home’s staff pays special attention to him. However she is secretly haunted by the loss of her child.

After celebrating Shigeki’s birthday Machiko decides to take him for a drive in the countryside. Making their way along the scenic back-roads the car is forced into a ditch by a land-slide and it is here that they embark on their journey of discovery together.
