“How have you been?” Takeshi’s letter is delivered one each month to his younger brother, Naoki. Takeshi is serving a life term in the prison for the crime that he had committed to save his brother. But the crime’s aftereffect extends to Naoki, and, branded as a “murderer’s brother,” Naoki is deprived of his love, career and dream. His desperate situation gradually changes, when he finds the true love with Yumiko, who always stands by him. To protect the love that he has finally found, Naoki begins writing one last letter to Takeshi…
A touching story of a man who was powerless against his irreversible fate, but still tries to overcome it in the quest for his dream.
