Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
Yasufumi Yoneda caused a train accident 10 years ago, where the train overturned and killed more than 100 people. Now, Yasufumi Yoneda is found dead at the same location where the accident occurred. His body is severed into two symmetrical halves. An investigation is underway to determine the cause of death - was it suicide or murder? Reiko Himekawa (Yuko Takeuchi) and her team from the Metropolitan Police Department leads the investigation.
Reiko discovers that only a short time existed between Yasufumi's exit from a drinking establishment that he frequented and the time of his death. If Yasufumi was murdered, the crime was premeditated. Reiko also learns that Yasufumi talked in the drinking establishment about having to pay out 860 million yen to the victims in the train accident 10 years ago, including to the president of the victim's compensation group Mutsuo Ogawa, who lost his eldest daughter in the accident, and Saneharu (Izumi Fujimoto).
Reiko and her team learns further that at that the time of train accident 10 years ago, station employee Kazutaka Tokuyama (Kenichi Takito) tried to save Saneharu before she was crushed to dead. After the incident, Kazutaka Tokuyama resigned. Reiko then spots a poster at the station where Kazutaka Tokuyama formerly worked. The poster depicts an image of a body symmetrically halved into two. Apparently, the painting was drawn by the former station employee Kazutaka Tokuyama.
Reiko then goes to Mutsuo Ogawa's home with Detective Kazuo Kikuta (Hidetoshi Nishijima). When they arrive, nobody answers the doorbell. When they touch the door, the door swings open. They go inside. Reiko then finds the dead body of Mutsuo Ogawa lying in the bathroom. The body is also halved into two symmetrical pieces. Reiko assumes that Yasufumi Yoneda and Mutsuo Ogawa were killed by the same person after spotting a particular piece of fabric on Mutsuo Ogawa that was also found on Yasufumi Yoneda.
After conducting further interviews with train accident survivors, Reiko is sure that Kazutaka Tokuyama is the person who killed Yasufumi Yoneda and Mutsuo Ogawa.
