A major newspaper has informally decided to employ a female university student. However, shock ripples within the newspaper because of a weekly magazine’s scoop that she is the daughter of the criminal in a serious case. This was the kidnapping of a newborn baby at a big hospital 20 years ago. The criminal demanded a ransom from the director of the hospital instead of the parents. But after the criminal had the large sum of money in hand, he died in an accident while being pursued by the police. The baby was never found. Kaji Hidekazu, a former hotshot journalist who has become deadwood in the wake of an incident, is ordered by the newspaper to re-investigate the kidnapping case. He finds out the shocking, tragic truth which had been kept under wraps.

This is the best drama I have seen in a long time. It's very engaging almost from the first minute. In each episode you get to know a little more about the mystery surrounding a kidnapping 20 years ago through the stories of witnesses whom the journalist is meeting. The acting is so good, and it's a shame a lot of these people have mostly played in subpar drama with over the top japanese humor. I really didn't know how good actors they were until I watched them here.

The drama is only 5 episodes long, so there's hardly any boring parts. The background music is amazing. It's so well done and fits the drama and the mood perfectly. I am really looking forward to the OST being released.

Anyway, this is seriously a must-watch. Best japanese drama in a very very long time.
