When he comes back after a few years and looks for his wife, he receives a letter from her that conveys a strange message to him and he soon finds out that she has died due to a terminal illness and that their child has gone missing. He then starts a desperate search for this lost child with the help of a dedicated police officer and whether he succeeds in his quest forms the rest of the story.
