A terrorist attack takes place in a South American country which leads to the death of 6 Japanese hostages as the negotiations for their release take longer than expected...

Two years later, a radio station's news reporter Nakahara (Sato) is contacted by Hitomi (Haru), the daughter of one of the hostages who died. Hitomi tells Nakahara that the military which had tried to rescue the hostages then had planted bugs at the terrorists' bases and this allowed them to record the voices of the hostages.

Hitomi gets the tapes which contained these "recitals" by the hostages and wants Nakahara to make them known to the public...
