Synopsis: Morohashi Masashi (Inagaki Goro) has the unusual label of former doctor and public prosecutor. One day, Morohashi is brought to Seiryo Medical University Hospital after a drinking binge. As he is getting treatment, he sees a female patient being rushed to the emergency centre. She suddenly throws up a large amount of blood. This perplexes rookie doctor Iketani Kazuki (Yamada Shintaro), who is examining his first patient. Morohashi gives precise instructions from Iketani’s side, and in the end operates with him.
