Story
Mizuhara Masaya has inadvertently killed his uncle, who had pressed him to repay debts right after a major earthquake which had taken place the morning after his father’s wake. When he recovers himself, an unfamiliar woman is standing beside him. In the middle of the chaos caused by the earthquake, Mizuhara begins to hang about this woman who calls herself Shinkai Mifuyu. In contrast to the feeble side that Mifuyu displays, she sometimes shows a glimpse of a fiery temper, “You cannot live if you’re not tough!” Before Mizuhara realises it, he has fallen under the spell of her beauty and wit. Then, he learns of the existence of a video tape recording of the death of his uncle and finds himself in dire straits … At that moment, detective Kato Wataru and his partner Nishizaki Takahito arrive from Tokyo at the disaster site in pursuit of the wanted criminal. When Kato happens to catch sight of Mifuyu, he senses something suspicious.
