Nomura has always had a problem looking people in the eyes, and as an adult he is constantly reminded of how frightening things can become if you do so. However, when he’s brutally beaten by a random gang and wakes up in the hospital, Nomura realizes his true terror is just beginning: he can no longer see the eyes on anyone’s face!
