A year ago Atsumi attempted suicide and has been in a coma ever since. With the assistance of «sensing», a new neuro-surgical treatment that enables communication with coma patients, her friend Koichi tries to find out why she did it and to wake her up. Overcoming his apprehensions, he enters Atsumi’s subconscious and discovers her at her desk, drawing manga. She asks him to find a drawing she gave him when they were at primary school, which she feels would restore her confidence in herself as an illustrator. Koichi is astonished and tries to explain that she tried to kill herself and has been in a coma for a year, but despite his insistent questions as to why she attempted suicide, Atsumi will only repeat that she needs this drawing.
