Synopsis: Detective Utsumi Kaoru (Shibasaki Kou), who works at Kaizuka Kita Police Precinct, has not been able to find her place in the male-dominated world of the police precinct. She is eventually encouraged by her boss to train for a year in Oklahoma in the United States, and stands at life’s crossroads. One day, Kaoru detains Jonen Kenichi (Santamaria Yusuke), a man placed on the Nagano Prefectural Police’s wanted list. He is with an old woman who is already dead. The old woman was being cared for by him. Jonen had killed a lady at the nursing care facility after getting into an argument with her, and came to Tokyo with this old woman. Kaoru gets a confession from him and is about to regain her confidence as a police officer. However, just as Jonen gets transferred to the Nagano Prefectural Police, he completely denies the charges, declaring that it is entirely different from the statement Kaoru had obtained. Kaoru ends up suspected of lying in order to take credit for herself. She starts reinvestigating with Toma Kento (Yagira Yuya) of the prefectural police in Nagano. But this time, she is informed of the circulation of an anonymous document from a reporter called Komoto to the Nagano Prefectural Police. “There is a dishonest police officer who drove an innocent reporter suicide,” it reads. Furthermore, this reporter who had committed suicide, is the father of the daughter of the old woman whom Jonen had allegedly killed. Shortly after the circulation of this document, the reporter’s wife and daughter die … … Is there a connection between these two cases?
