Synopsis: Unprecedented disaster of chemical products used in household – the humidifier disinfectants disaster. Many people, including mothers and infants who used humidifier sanitizer containing harmful substances, died or damaged their health. Since then, reasonable restrictions on companies that manufacture, distribute, and sell those humidifier sanitizers, or support for victims, have not been carried out properly. In such situation, the reality is that it is difficult for the public to empathize with how the victims suffered, how they are confronting the irrationality, and how they are surviving. This tragic disaster is being forgotten from the public over time. This is a documentary made to foster empathy for the victims. A project aims to set a life expectancy and divide one’s life into 24 hours to make a life plan. A group of ordinary people make a life plan with happy memories and hope for the future.
