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…
