A film adaptation of a famous work by Mori Ogai that deals with the issue of euthanasia, directed by Togashi Shin, who showed what he could do in films for boys such as Tetsujin 28 (Tetsujin Nijuhachi-go).

Haneda Shobei (Sugimoto Tetta) finds it strange that he has such a clear conscience, and asks him why. Kisuke begins to explain the sad truth of what led him to kill his brother.
