The story features Ninomiya Kazunari as a newbie prosecutor Okino Keiichiro who has a strong sense of justice and is sent to work at the Tokyo Public Prosecutors' Office with an elite prosecutor Mogami Takeshi (Kimura Takuya). When a murder case is assigned to their department, Okino and Mogami develop different views about the case. It is revealed later that the suspect in this case happens to be the same suspect in a murder which had passed its statute of limitations. Mogami is bent on not letting this suspect off the hook again as his inability to put him to justice in the past caused the death of a person who was important to him. This causes Mogami and Okino to clash especially when Mogami tries to overstep his authority as a prosecutor and Okino has reservations about the biased manner in which his senior is conducting the investigation.
