This drama is based on the book Flowers for Algernon written in 1966 by Daniel Keyes. Written some 30 years ago, this world-renowned masterpiece has been translated into several languages and has been read by those of all generations.
An adult, Haru Fujishima only possesses the mental capacity of a child. Others have laughed at him since birth. But because of his good-natured personality, Haru doesn't let his disability get in the way.
Erina Toya is a teacher that works at a night school for the mentally disabled. Erina really enjoys her work, and her students are quite attached to her.
One day, one of Erina's friends who works at a research institute at a college tells her that they are searching for a mentally disabled person to test an operation that may cure the disability. Since Haru is like a younger brother to Erina, she tells him that he should let them perform the surgery on him. Waiting for Haru during the preliminary tests though was something totally unexpected; he will be competing against a lab rat by the name of Algernon. Haru feels a kind of closeness to Algernon, who has already gone surgery to enhance his brainpower.
Awaiting Haru after his surgery is a whole new world. In just a short period of time, Haru's I.Q. goes from 68 to 100, then 150. Naturally the now genius Haru begins to experience a self-awakening and even falls in love for the first time. The object of his affection is none other than Erina, who has helped him develop his genius. Haru's emotional development though isn't as rapid as his mental development.
Though Erina is living with her boyfriend, she too starts feeling herself emotionally crossing the teacher-student boundary, and falls for Haru.
Suddenly one day, in the middle of all the changes that Haru has been going through, he realizes that Algernon's intelligence is slipping. Was the surgery a failure? Will Haru return to his original mental capacity?
Later, Haru begins to feel his own intelligence declining, so he does everything that he can to try to stop it; but this is to no avail. Seeing this all happen right before her very eyes, this makes Erina feel like this is her fault.
What will happen to the love that has blossomed between Haru and Erina? Will they be able to find what is really important to them?
