The synopsis for Beyond Goodbye has been sourced from Netflix:

“Saeko suddenly loses her fiancé Yusuke in a traffic accident. As she tries to overcome her grief, she meets Naruse, a man who strangely reminds her of Yusuke. Little did she know that Naruse had received Yusuke’s heart a few months prior to their encounter—a heart still in love and holding all the memories of Yusuke and Saeko’s relationship.”

Kasumi Arimura has been cast in the leading role of Saeko. She recently starred in We Made a Beautiful Bouquet, which grossed over 3.8 billion Yen at the box office. Kasumi also starred in the Netflix film Call Me Chihiro.
