Inspired by the works of Nobel Prize winner Yamanaka Shinya, comes a medical suspense drama that focuses on the cutting-edge medical technology. Set in the infamous Institute of Biomedical Research and Innovation hospital (IBRI), it tells the story of a medical team, that is made up of doctors from different fields of expertise, age-group and career aspirations. They are the last hope for all the terminally ill patients who are sent there. "What does it mean to live?", "What does it mean to save a patient?" and "How far is one supposed to go in the name of medical care?". These are the questions that trouble the team, as they slowly grow as an individual and as a team, helping each other overcome their complexes and their past.

Hatano Takumi is a qualified GP, and had thought of taking over his father's family practise. However, his father has other plans for him, and recommended him to join IBRI instead. Takumi is excellent at diagnosing a patient's illness, but he is considered an eccentric, due to his habit of dropping everything to have a snack on-the-dot at 3 o'clock. Unbeknownst to himself, he actually carries a secret from when he was a kid. When that secret is exposed, what will happen to Takumi? --Fuji TV
