A tire comes off a moving truck and becomes a deadly weapon, hitting a mother and child. The problem was caused by the vehicle manufacturer's failure to recall the vehicle, but the blame falls on the head of the delivery company who, despairing, searches for evidence that the recall was suppressed. Crossing paths with banks, police, weekly magazine writers, the victim's family, and various others, he eventually gets to the truth of the matter.

  • Both are adapted from Jun Ikeido novels. Though the leads are very different people (Hanzawa is an intense and almost samurai-like banker, Akamatsu a gentle yet steadfast everyman) each is pitted against the financial equivalent of Goliath. Conflicts of both dramas share a common theme and atmosphere, though Soratobu Taiya lends itself more to gray motivation and sentimentality. The promotional artwork is nearly the same, too.
