Summary: After graduating from the Tokyo University School of Law, Tamiya Makoto goes on to Harvard University where she earns an MBA. She later works at one of the "big three" networks in the United States as a news reporter. While covering a story on an international symposium in Paris, Makoto is scouted to work for JBC Television in Japan. The news producer at JBC wants to use Makoto to help raise low viewer ratings. He persuades her to work for him for an absurdly high salary, and also gives her the right to hire who she needs.

While Makoto is being brought in to be the savior of the News Department, one man gets transferred from the Variety Department. His name is Nagase Hiromi. Since joining JBC Television, all he has done is variety programs. Although Hiromi has done everything he possibly could to ensure his programs are a success, his boss just could not take anymore of Hiromi's behavior which ranged from getting caught up in scandals with female television personalities, punching-out assistant directors, to taking kickbacks from production companies. His boss finally tells Hiromi to make a fresh start in the "hard nosed" News Department.

So now the News Department has Makoto who thinks high ratings are the meaning of life, and Hiromi who values the success of a program as just a tool for the full enjoyment of life. These two totally different personalities mix it up and somehow reach a mutual understanding, creating a delightful "light comedy" for adults.

She has ambitions to be promoted to professor by succeeding in a surgery using the Batista technique — an extremely difficult type of heart surgery — and also by writing a paper on it. A year ago, Akira witnessed Ryutaro's skills when he was an NGO doctor. That's why she recruits him and asks him to use the Batista technique. Since Ryutaro's arrival, urgent patients who would have been abandoned in the past, are miraculously saved by the "hands of God."

But Ryutaro's actions cause a stir in the closed university hospital, where power struggles happen everyday and the priority of doctors is to protect themselves. This environment doesn't stop Ryutaro from following his beliefs. Ryutaro's existence also bothers Dr. Noguchi, professer of the Faculty of Cardiac Surgery, the power broker of the hospital.

There is a man keeping a very watchful eye on Akira and Ryutaro's Batista team. It's Gunji Kirishima, Akira's boyfriend and assistant professor at a rival hospital. He and Akira have promised each other to carry on Japan's cardiosurgery. Gunji has also confronted Ryutaro in the past.

Other characters include Miki Satohara, an extremely brilliant nurse who looks up to Ryutaro and has more medical knowledge than the average doctor; Noboru Ijuin, an intern that first opposes Ryutaro, but is gradually influenced by him; and Professor Kito, who is looking for the opportunity to recruit Ryutaro away to the Emergency Room (ER).
