Ryota is forced to make a life-changing decision, to choose between "nature" and "nurture". In the meanwhile, seeing Midori’s devotion to Keita even after learning his origin, and communicating with the rough yet caring family who raised his blood son for the last six years, Ryota also starts to question himself: has he really been a "father" all these years...
