From 10.00 p.m., Saturdays, 13 July 2019


Three years ago in Yokohama, Higuchi Shogo was the head of the Violent Crimes Section of Koto Police Precinct’s First Investigative Division and had the highest arrest rate. One day, his wife Miki was struck in the head with a blunt object and murdered in brutal fashion. Right before she was killed, she called the emergency command centre to ask for help as she tried to run away. But at that time, the centre did not have the capability to pinpoint her location. It called her back instead and this sound alerted the killer to where she was. Higuchi, who was pursuing a fugitive in another case, only learnt this devastating truth after everything had ended. The police was certain that the suspect Sagara Takuya was his wife’s murderer from the clothes found at Sagara’s house and he was tried a month later. However, Assistant Inspector Tachibana Hikari, the police officer who received the emergency call, testified as the prosecution’s witness that the voice she heard at the time of the incident, was not his. She added that there was a faint clacking sound and asserts that the killer is someone else. Higuchi, who was convinced that Sagara was responsible for Miki’s death, went into a frenzy in court. As a result, Sagara was released and the case was never solved. Three years later, Higuchi has switched to working at a police box. He has been reduced to a man whom even his ex-colleagues steer clear of following his wife’s death. Meanwhile, Hikari becomes the head of Koto Police Precinct’s emergency command centre after chalking up a track record of solving difficult cases at the crime lab. She proposes setting up an Emergency Call Unit to the top brass in order to swiftly rescue victims and says that she intends to make Higuchi the leader of this new emergency response team. When Higuchi learns about this, he barges into the Centre, demanding to know why she said that she could hear things no one else could. Hikari asks if he would believe her if she told the truth. At that moment, a call comes in from a young woman who says she has been kidnapped … …!

The grief from not being able to protect the person he loved the most, becomes a heavy cross to bear. He would drink and cry for his wife. One day, the Emergency Call Unit is established in the Emergency Command Centre. He is one of the members recruited for the unit. However, he stubbornly refuses to join the team when he learns that the leader of the Centre is none other than Tachibana Hikari who handled his wife’s phone call on that fateful day three years earlier … …
