Based on a true story
This story is about a girl named Aya who suffered from an incurable disease, but
lived life to the fullest until her death at 25. The original story is based on
the diary Aya kept writing until she could no longer hold a pen. The book that
later followed entitled “One Liter of Tears" has sold over 1.1 million copies.
Aya's only wish was “to live." By carefully depicting Aya's earnest desire to
live, and the love of her family, friends, and lover, the drama, “One Liter of
Tears" wishes to deliver her simple but strong message: “Just being alive is
such a lovely and wonderful thing."
The drama starts right before Aya is hit with the tragic illness, called
Spinocerebellar Degeneration, in which the nerve cells of areas necessary for
the human body to move and balance - including the cerebellum, brain stem, and
spinal cord - transforms and eventually disappears.
15-year old Aya Ikeuchi is the eldest daughter of a typical Japanese family. She
lives with her cheerful and reliable mother, Shioka, father Mizuo, owner of a
tofu shop, younger sisters Ako and Rika, and younger brother Hiroki.
On the day of her high school entrance exam, Aya is full of energy as she leaves
the house. But she falls asleep on the bus and misses her stop. She gets off the
bus and starts running in the rain, slips and falls, injuring her knee. That's
when she meets Haruto Aso, who was planning to skip the exam. He gives her a
ride on his bicycle to school where the exam will be given. Aya is allowed to
take the exam in the school nurse's office, and manages to pass.
When the new semester begins, Aya is elected class rep. and joins the basketball
team. On the boys team is someone she has eyes for, which adds to the things she
has to look forward to.
Amidst her happy days at school, Aya begins to experience physical difficulties.
She often drops food from her chopsticks while eating, can't pour water into a
cup without spilling it, and occasionally wobbles while she walks. Aya's mother
Shioka, a former nurse, is the only person that realizes these changes.
One day, Aya is about to leave home as usual. When she starts to run, she trips
over her own feet and falls. She couldn't protect herself with her arms while
falling, causing her to land on her face - making her bleed heavily. This injury
soon reveals the existence of Aya's fateful disease.
