Synopsis: Rumpled after staying up all night long, Associate Professor Kiriyama Yuki (Matsushita Nao) of Kanagawa Chuo University’s forensic medicine class receives a phone call about the discovery of a drowned man at a pier. Detective Murakami Ei (Matsushige Yutaka) of Tobu Police Precinct is at the scene as Yuki arrives. The police regards drowning as the cause of death because the possibility of foul play is low, but she talks to the dead body, telling him that she will listen closely. The drowned man is identified as Kasai Kazuma. Fourth-year medical faculty student Inukai Hajime (Yokoyama Yu) intends to be a clinician for the department of surgery, but does not make the cut due to his grades. He goes straight to bargain with Yuki, determined to ask for a change in course. However, shortly after that, he is ordered to help with Kasai’s autopsy.
