Lawyer Reiji Mikoshiba returns to his job after a long layoff to be involved in a murder mystery that does not add up. The victim's family is being too defensive but there is no evidence to prove the suspect was not guilty. Mikoshiba must find a way to reveal what is being hidden from everyone's collective memory of the incident. This unconventional and unpredictable thriller combines the very best of Eastern atmosphere with Western crime elements, creating an unforgettably vivid spectacle.Reseña del editor:
Move over, garden-variety anti-heroes, and make way for a villain-hero, darker than the darkest knight: a lawyer with a faulty conscience graces us with his unsolicited presence.
Not only does Mikoshiba have no qualms about taking on guilty-as-hell clients provided they can pay his exorbitant fees, but his own past seems mired in inexpiable sin. Yet the cynical attorney, whose legal acumen, at least, is impeccable, mysteriously seeks to defend a thirtysomething woman with limited means and below-average looks who has murdered her deadbeat husband. A sordid case if there ever was one, it makes veteran prosecutor Misaki wonder what the bastard is really after.
What unfolds is one of the best courtroom dramas ever to come out of Japan.
