Watching the people of Hinamizawa rally together to liberate her friend
Satoko gives Rika hope that she too can defy fate and curb her tragic
demise. But when the bodies of Takano and Tomitake are discovered, Rika
fears her chance is slipping away. Not knowing who to trust and not
wanting to put anyone else in danger, Rika pulls away from her friends.
But as her experiences in this world continue to diverge from the norm,
Rika clings to the hope that the events that lead to her murder might
also change. She has the will to change her destiny, but will that be
enough to defeat whoever-or whatever-wants her dead?
