When a homeless man who has lost his memory gains the ability to see people’s deepest traumas after an experimental medical intervention, reality and imagination intertwine. Susumu Nokoshi (Go Ayano) was once a successful employee at a prestigious foreign financial firm, but his fortune changed and he lost it all. As a 34-year-old on the street, he meets medical assistant Manabu Ito, who is looking for people to perform a prohibited procedure known as trepanation.
Trepanation involves making a small hole in the skull. After Manabu offers him 700,000 yen, Susumu reluctantly agrees to the procedure. Now, however, when Susumu closes his right eye, he sees that some of the people in front of him look distorted. Manabu informs Susumu that he now has the ability to visualize the trauma and dark secrets held by these people.
