Keiichi's appeals to the Child Consultation Center receive an outpouring
of support from his classmates and teachers, but still the authorities
refuse to intercede. Hinamizawa is a village controlled by three
powerful families, and without the support of the Sonozakis-and their
fearsome head, Oryou-the Center will not budge. As Keiichi struggles to
convince Oryou, Rika feels her dream of living a happy life beyond the
summer of 1983 begin to fade away. Does Keiichi have what it takes to
make a miracle happen? Can Satoko be saved? Can Rika...?
