Hayami Keigo is a promising young heart surgeon at a university hospital, but is made to examine patients at a clinic in the mountains during summer on the orders of his superior. At a harsh environment 2,000 m above sea level, there is a very small quantity of testing equipment and medicine. It is a culture shock and setback for Keigo who is active in advanced medical care and the use of cutting-edge equipment. This is a place detached from modern medical care where doctors make all diagnoses by touching, looking at and talking to patients. Koyama Haruka was raised by parents who ran a mountain lodge, but when she was 5, her mother died in an accident on the mountains. That influenced her to become a nurse in Tokyo. However, one day, an incident prompts her to escape from Tokyo and return to the mountain lodge. It is the same time that Keigo arrives at the clinic. Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
I find the story very unique. Having a mountain clinic despite the decreasing human resources of doctors and nurses is somewhat for me is very noble. They may have lack of facilities and equipment in the clinic but they become resourceful to be able to save the lives of the patient.
It's a moving drama. It shows the bond of the people who became a family protecting and loving nature. Reminds me of a saying, "Don't change the mountain, let the mountain change you."
The cast did a great job. Their acting is good. And I think it must have been tough and dangerous filming this drama because of the setting.
The scenery is so breathtaking. It would be nice if I could climb up there someday! haha!:D
The story is about a remote mountain clinic, which is pretty remarkable in and of itself! Off the top of my head, I can only think of 2 other dramas like this one and all of them are superb, well created and well shot, not to mention well scripted and well acted!
Each episode is different, but every single tiny little bit of each episode combines into one complete perfect story! This show is a medical story about life at an isolated clinic, so do not expect high action drama or romance side stories, though, there is a bit of drama and romance; however, it is very well balanced to not be too "overbearing" (for lack of a better word) in this exciting, medical, and true real life story.
Please do not lose interest in this show because it feels boring or because an actor/actress is "wasted" on this show, or because other people's opinions (hypocritical I know). This story and any other drama/movie/special that you want to watch should be YOUR choice and not influenced or made by anyone else! This show is an underrated gem and it is worth a chance.
Because of the cast and the medical, slice-of-life story this show is fantastic, and a definite must watch! I definitely did not expect the ending...
