Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
Reporters Takehara (Osamu Mukai) and Aki Tsumura (Manami Higa) work for the magazine “Shukan Dodongo”. Their chief editor tells them to monitor Shohei Okase who is an ex-bureaucrat and was recently released from prison. 7 years ago, Shohei Okase was arrested for embezzling 1 billion yen. The investigation seven years ago was able to track down 700 million yen, but unable to locate the remaining 300 million yen. Now, the chief editor is sure Shohei Okase will go to wherever the remaining 300 million yen is hidden.
Shohei Okase stops by a racehorse training center and heads to to a street lined with expensive restaurants. Reporters Takehara and Tsumura lose Shoehei Okase in this area.
Later, Shohei Okase is found dead at a cemetery in Katsuura, Chiba Prefecture. He was strangled to death. The chief editor at the magazine believes Shohei was killed over the 300 million yen. The chief editor and Takehara go to the racehorse training center where Shohei Okase stopped by earlier. They learn that the owner of the riding stable is Ryuzo Nishida (Susumu Terajima) and the owner of the horse is Politician Torahei Tateyama (Ren Osugi).
The chief editor suddenly stops talking about the Shohei Okase case. Takehara feels strange about the sudden change.
A body in a suitcase is discovered in the forest in Mizusawa, Iwate Prefecture.
- Based on novel “Kawaita Haishoku" by Seicho Matsumoto (first published from April 10, 1961 to August 21, 1961 in Magazine Shukan Koron).
