Shinichiro Kiyama (Ryunosuke Kamiki) lost his entire family in a tragic plane crash while still a young boy. As an adult, he has no friends, no girlfriend, and lives for work alone. But his life changes dramatically when he realizes he has “Fortuna’s Eye” – the mysterious ability to “see right through people who are about to die.” While struggling with the power of his newfound “gift” he meets Aoi Kiryu (Kasumi Arimura) at a cell phone shop. Aoi is a cheerful girl who lifts Shinichiro’s confidence and inspires him to dream. They are drawn to each other and the ensuing days are filled with happiness. But their happiness is short-lived as Shinichiro one day begins to “see through” Aoi…
Shinichiro is tormented with a painful decision: Should he save Aoi and die in her place or save himself and watch her die? If you saw “death” in your partner’s future, what choice would you make?
