Morimura Tomomi is a housewife scorned by her husband and two sons, and yet she continues to protect the family. On her 46th birthday, she leaves home in disgust and embarks on a 1,200 km journey. It is Tomomi’s first time driving onto the highway and she speeds along to the west. On the road, she encounters a series of traumatising episodes. She detects her husband’s affair, is faced with a truck driver who mistakes her for a prostitute housewife, and finally her car gets stolen. While Tomomi is at a loss, a good-looking young man and an elderly person give her a ride, and she arrives in Nagasaki. As she meets various people in this town which was once transformed into a wasteland because of the atomic bomb, she becomes aware of a “wilderness” within her and starts to explore the path to rebirth.

~~ Based on the novel "Dakara Kōya" by Kirino Natsuo.

What is good about this drama, the story is very realistic. It portrays some of the reality that sometimes happening in Japan. The housewife who was very dedicated to raising her children without thinking about her own needs. She neglects herself too much to the point she was disrespected by her own family. It is about a self-discovery that sometimes things need to be destroyed into ruins. From ruins or wasteland, then a new beginning will only be able to start. The only things that lacking are the pace of the story is too slow and can be too boring. The ending was somewhat an open ending. For me, it's not an exact closure for the main lead, which kind of sad. Since you follow up on her journey, you kind of want something that is definite about her journey. The drama also talked about the Nagasaki bombing during WW II.  I think the drama can take the story of WWII more dramatic in order to make it more interesting and appealing. I don't recommend it for someone who wants a closure or get bored very easily. But this drama can be good for something different from a regular drama. It's a gamble to watch.
