20 February 2011, from 10.00 p.m.
Udagawa Ryota, a detective from the Fifth Section of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s First Investigative Division, has a rival. That person is his contemporary, Soga Kazuhiko, a man with no desire for career advancement, but was assigned to the Public Security Department on the strength of his abilities. Ten days ago, the body of a leader of a designated crime syndicate was found stabbed to death within the jurisdiction of Tsukishima Police Precinct. Udagawa was roped in for a raid on a gang that was in conflict with the victim. At that moment, one of the members had fled and opened fire on Udagawa, who rushed out and gave chase. He was saved in the nick of time by Soga. Why was Soga at that scene? However, three days later, Soga was suddenly given a dishonourable discharge without any reason. He disappeared and could not be contacted. A worried Udagawa searches for his whereabouts, and comes under pressure within the police organisation. Meanwhile, another dead body is discovered in an apartment. It is that of the gang member who had fired at Udagawa. The Fourth Organised Crime Division, which presides over the investigation task force, tries to settle the case as gang warfare. However, the possibility that it was the work of the same criminal emerges from the similarities in the modus operandi. Then, Soga’s name comes up as a suspect in the two murder cases … A passion which Udagawa had never had rises up in him as he entertains doubts about the ‘police organisation’ for the first time. It does not matter even if he is sacked. He will help Soga!
