Overview

 In the small Japanese town of Suiten, two children were abducted. They were Mizuka and Taro Komori. The police received a call from the kidnapper demanding a ransom for the safe return of the children. The police later found the man and chased him out of a construction site, but he ran out to the street and was struck by a car. With the kidnapper dead, the location of the children was not discovered for four days. The children were found in an abandoned hospital tied to beds with no food or water. Taro was in a state of shock but still alive. His sister however, did not fare so well and died a few days before. Now eleven years later Taro still has nightmares involving his abduction and seems to have out-of-body experiences while sleeping.
