The 15th NHK Yorudora is Dream, based on ideas from the 2002 self-help book "The One-Minute Millionaire: The Enlightened Way to Wealth" by Robert Allen and Mark Victor Hansen.
Twenty years ago, Katsumata Eisuke kidnapped 6 year old Koido Chiharu and demanded ransom in exchange for her. However, no matter how much he threatened them, Chiharu's parents kept insisting they had no money, and kept trying to drive down the sum of the ransom. Finally, they produced only 80,000 yen and even Katsumata began to pity Chiharu, who was abandoned by her parents. He released Chiharu, sending her home on a bus.
Now an adult, Chiharu attends a seminar given by the charismatic business journalist, Umino Tadahito. The seminar is called "Make 100 Million Yen in 90 Days." Chiharu's son, Shuuji, was taken away from her by her late husband's parents. They agree to return him only if Chiharu successfully makes the 100 million yen in 90 days. According to Umino's advice, Chiharu gathers some people together to run various business transactions and grows successful. However, that's exactly what Katsumata, who has been watching over Chiharu for some time now, has planned. Katsumata is now trying to atone for his past actions.
However, Umino, who knows of both their pasts, comes up with an incredible idea...
