Cast & Credits
Telling drama is not just a matter of finding a solution to the problem, but ending with the ally of justice. The birth and destiny of a human being told the truth that it is impossible for anyone to operate. "I feel that my heart and my tears are often painful, but I feel that I am being saved to a serious posture without the lies of the people."
Apart from the babies themselves, perhaps, there is not a single character that is perfect- all are, for want of a better word, humans. With few exceptions, they all aspire towards their dreams, all fall short in some way, hurt others unintentionally, and learn to cherish what they have, even if they know it may not last. Kiyohara Kaya gives an incredible performance as the nurse in training Aota Aoi, supported by a fantastic cast- Hayama Shono was a highlight, through his moving character arc.
The potentially loaded topic of the abortion is handled concisely. The series neither glorifies nor demonises the process, leaving the viewer themselves to form their own opinion. The only certainty is that the baby's life, even in its preliminary stages, can not go unacknowledged- there is gravitas in the fact that it was conceived.
