However, when a video slandering Kasuga makes its way onto the web, their lives plummet into free fall. Meanwhile, Ebina, captain of the Seiryu Clan—a yakuza organization with deep roots in Yokohama—introduces Kasuga to a man from his past, Jo Sawashiro. Out of the man's lips comes a devastating revelation: Akane—Kasuga's mother and the woman whom Arakawa loved—is alive in Hawaii. With little time remaining, she wishes to see her son one last time.
