Daichi is a 10-year old sick boy who never speaks or do anything. Wanting to not be considered useless, Kanae Murota creates a spiritual community with Daichi as symbol, an utopia where everyone is useful.
Kanae uses Daichi as intermediary to help her channel her medium powers and be able to connect to the deceased. Kunio later attempts to free Daichi and take him, but as he is hallucinating, he crashes his truck.
On his 10th birthday, a big earthquake occurs, Kanae and Osamu go to take Daichi. Reaching his room, Daichi stands up and thanks her mother, shocking both Kanae and Osamu that he spoke. In that moment, a rock falls on Daichi's head and kills him.
