A jealous doctor and his philandering wife mourn the death of their little girl when she is murdered in this drama taken from the best-selling novel by Ayako Miura. Out of a twisted sense of revenge, the doctor adopts the daughter of the man who murdered his child. Although the mother initially knows nothing of her husband's actions, a key scene has the mother revealing to the girl the circumstances behind her adoption. She later learns she is really the doctor's daughter and not the daughter of the killer in this somber drama.
