Brought up in an orphanage, Haoto, a young blind girl, was teased and discriminated against, and the only things she enjoyed were playing with a puppy at the pet shop, and playing the piano. Even though she is blind, Haoto had an amazing talent that even she didn’t realize. A talent called “perfect pitch”. She could play any song on the piano after hearing it only once. Finally, someone noticed her talent. His name was Shinya Minazuki, and he was also a lonely pianist who was brought up in an orphanage. Haoto, about to start a new life in a world unknown to her, comes to be entangled in an intense dispute between the siblings of the rich Minazuki family over who will inherit their prestigious music school. What will happen to the gifted Haoto? This drama, which evolves around beautiful piano music, is full of love, suspense, and mystery.
