Synopsis: Assistant Inspector Shimazaki (Okuda Eiji) of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s Second Investigative Division is grappling with a problem. His eldest son, Jotaro (Okamura Tomofumi), had divulged confidential information on an ongoing investigation into Nichiwa Bank’s suspected accounting fraud, to Tomioka, a Nichiwa Bank employee and alumni of the judo team. Shimazaki decides to sell out his organisation in order to protect Jotaro, but Tomioka is killed by someone during the investigation. Relief takes over as his worry that the secret will be leaked disappears. However, his second son, Shinji (Kora Kengo), suddenly emerges as a suspect in that murder case. Shinji, who has dropped out of school and leads an aimless life, had rebelled against his father’s constant pursuit of discipline, integrity and austerity and imperiousness in just about everything, but unable to believe that his son would abruptly commit murder, Shimazaki begins to investigate his movements by himself. Is Shinji the true culprit behind Tomioka’s murder?
