In Japan, in the near future, the aging of the population is accelerating. To address this, the government implements the “Plan 75” program, which offers logistical and financial support to citizens aged 75 and older for euthanasia. An elderly woman, Michi, a recruiter for the Plan 75 program named Hiromu, and a young Filipino caregiver, Maria, find themselves faced with the choice between life and death.
