STORY -
The drama goes into the fallout of when a 14 year old girl becomes pregnant. The drama does bring up some interesting issues and it seems quite anti-abortion. I was quite disappointed by the end of the drama because of unnecessary conflicts brought on by secondary characters.

ACTING/CAST -
Shida Mirai was the female lead and this was not one of her better performances. She often came across as flat and uninteresting.
The only worthwhile performances were from Tanaka Misako as the all-bearing and brave mother of Shida Mirai's character. Also, kudos to the actress who played Miura's mother. She was an interesting and complicated character.

OVERALL -

The drama would have been much better if there was more believable acting from the lead characters and better plot development.

The drama is neither happy nor sad, but it is full of reflection. The 14 years old girl in pregnant... It sounds terribly. Miki gave a baby, though everyone has objection. I see her future in black colors, but who knows... I admit she had exceptional parents, who could accept that choice. Especially mother. An oasis of calm. It was very unrealistic, but finally - it's fiction.

In Japan, at least the abortion isn't forbidden, so there always exists a rescue answear this situtation. Maybe it's not easy, but there is always better to have a choice.
