Koji Akashi has returned to his hometown for the first time in several years as informed of his father’s suicide. His father was a whistleblower who revealed the car part's defect hidden within a major automaker, but was forced to kill himself in the end. The bereaved family is at the brink of collapse in term of finance, affection as well as compassion. One night, Koji meets a man called Kitamura at the small factory he left the family. Kitamura works at a children's nursing home and he offers to help Koji’s difficult situation. However, the truth is that Kitamura and his comrades get involved in crime based on a conviction that they do protect children. Koji feels puzzled at first, but he is gradually possessed with the eccentric man Kitamura, and then his desire for revenge begins to arise in himself in confusion between good and evil.
