In the spring of Showa 24 (1949), Sone Kikuo (Sato Ryuta), whose good friend, Imamura Hajime (Tsukamoto Takashi), was killed in action while piloting a Zero fighter, is overwhelmed by a sense of guilt and emptiness. Sone is posted to Orion Camera's Shibuya research lab in a job transfer. It is only a lab in name for there are only just a few researchers and staff. However, one day, Sone encounters the surgeon Kaji Tetsuro (Nakamura Shunsuke) whose anxiety about the growing number of people whose stomaches suffer because of food shortages in post-war Tokyo leads him to suggest the invention of a camera that can photograph the stomach lining for the early detection of stomach cancer. Moved by Kaji's passion to save lives, the initially half-hearted Sone gets absorbed in research and regains his zest for life as he faces the challenge of developing a gastroscopy. --Jdrama Weblog
