Raised in the US with a Japanese father and Korean mother, she has a very personal drive in her work as a journalist, and is determined to find the truth. Meanwhile, Sugihara (Tori Matsuzaka), a bureaucrat at the Cabinet Information Research Office, finds himself torn. In contrast to his conviction to, “serve the people”, he is given the duty to control any type of news that may be inconvenient to the current administration. Approaching the day his beloved wife is set to give birth, he decides to pay a visit to a respected old boss, Kanzaki. A few days later, Kanzaki is found thrown from the roof of a building.
