Synopsis

The hit Korean medical drama remade in America finally comes to Japan! With the world of pediatric surgery as its backdrop, this drama warmly depicts the growth of a young doctor with savant syndrome.

Despite being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and impaired communication skills, Minato, a young man with savant syndrome, dreamed of being a pediatric surgeon since his childhood. He graduated at the top of his class in medical school, and dove straight into his residency in the world of pediatric surgery, but his pure and childlike nature conflicts with the practices and customs of the hospital, which causes all kinds of troubles and problems. But as he contends with the resistance and prejudices of those around him, he fights for the children’s lives, develops empathy for the children, and grows and matures right alongside them. Minato’s warm affection and desire to nurture each child into adulthood changes the child patients, their siblings, their parents, and eventually, the hospital itself.
