Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
Seijitsu Kusano (Yosuke Sugino) graduated from a prestigious university and landed a job at a large company. His life seemed to be on a smooth sailing journey, but things change drastically for him. Due to the Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy, Seijitsu Kusano is laid off from his job. This is just 6 months after he started work there. Making things worse, his sick father requires expensive medical treatment that his insurance does not cover. Seijitsu Kusano is also pressured by a bank to repay his student loan. He is now in a desperate situation. Seijitsu Kusano then sees a notice for a job that promises lavish pay. His job turns out to require Seijitsu Kusano to withdraw money from elderly people's bank accounts. These people are victims of voice phishing.
