Story
Veteran detective Arima Eiji, who is on the verge of the retirement age of 60, is seconded to a unit which was established under national policy to re-investigate death-row inmates and probes the possibility of wrong convictions. Besides Arima, the young, elite lawyer Sera Shoichi and public prosecutor Haruna Misuzu who was demoted from the Public Prosecutor’s Office, belong to the unit. Arima is known as a go-getter but once wrongly charged an innocent person in a case he was responsible for. He has been doing things by habit and is indifferent at work despite Sera and Misuzu. However, one day, Arima gets information on one of the unit’s cases which he somehow begins to investigate as if he were possessed. He arrives at a death-row inmate called Furuuchi Hirobumi. With feelings of atonement and suspicions of possible false charges, Arima discovers the hidden truth but Furuuchi’s execution is already imminent.
