Dr.Koto was a young, prominent surgeon, who left a prestigious hospital in Tokyo and moved to an isolated island in the southern part of Japan. He works at a clinic there as the only doctor on the island. He was not necessarily welcomed by the islanders first as they had negative experience with former doctors at the clinic. But with his sincere attitude toward the patients and commitment to his work, Kensuke gradually developed good rapport with his patients.
