YesAsia Editorial Description

The bible says that the son will always inherit the sins of his father, but does the same apply to daughters and mothers? Based on the award-winning novel by Kakuda Mitsuyo, Yokame no Semi is a suspense drama about the lingering effect of a well-meaning crime from A Lone Scalpel director Narushima Izuru and Summer Wars scriptwriter Okudera Satoko. Nagasaku Hiromi (Wandering Home) stars as a woman who kidnaps the baby daughter of the man she had an affair with, and Inoue Mao (Hana Yori Dango) plays the kidnapped girl as an adult, who is finding herself repeating the path of her abductor.

Kiwako (Nagasaku Hiromi) has an affair with a married man and becomes pregnant. However, she is forced to have an abortion and becomes sterile. One night, she sneaks into her lover's house and sees his newborn daughter Erina. Impulsively, Kiwako takes the baby and raises her for four years before getting caught. Decades later, the 21-year-old Erina (Inoue Mao), who never truly came to terms with her abduction and returning to her real parents, is now a college student in an affair with a married man. Angered that she may be following Kiwako's path, Erina agrees to follow a reporter and retrace her life with Kiwako.

Special Edition includes making of, deleted scenes, stage events, and trailers. It also comes with a special booklet.
