Reporters Takehara and Tsumura Aki work for the magazine “Shukan Dodongo”. Their chief editor tells them to monitor Okase Shohei who is an ex-bureaucrat and was recently released from prison. 7 years ago, Shohei was arrested for embezzling 1 billion yen. The investigation seven years ago was able to track down 700 million yen but unable to locate the remaining 300 million yen. Now, the chief editor is sure Shohei will go to wherever the remaining 300 million yen is hidden. Shohei stops by a racehorse training center and heads to a street lined with expensive restaurants. Reporters Takehara and Tsumura lose Shohei in this area. Later, Shohei is found dead at a cemetery in Katsuura, Chiba Prefecture. He was strangled to death. The chief editor at the magazine believes Shohei was killed over the 300 million yen. The chief editor and Takehara go to the racehorse training center where Shohei stopped by earlier. They learn that the owner of the riding stable is Nishida Ryuzo and the owner of the horse is Politician Tateyama Torahei. The chief editor suddenly stops talking about the Shohei case. Takehara feels strange about the sudden change. A body in a suitcase is discovered in the forest in Mizusawa, Iwate Prefecture. ~~ Based on the novel “Kawaita Haishoku" by Matsumoto Seicho.

It was an interesting mystery--not so much figuring out who's the murderer, but figuring out how to prove it. While there were a few plot holes, it nevertheless engaged my interest (mostly because of Mukai Osamu).

Mukai Osamu as Takehara and Higa Manami as Tsumura worked well together as a team. Despite working for a dingy tabloid magazine, he never forgot his roots as an investigative reporter. Tsumura started out as a pretty wishy-washy character in my opinion. I was happy to see that change, however, thanks to Takehara's influence and finding out the real reason for the murder.

Unfortunately, the villains were one-dimensional cliché characters, and not even decent actors could remedy that.

I didn't notice the music, and I would not rewatch it, but it's an okay movie to watch if you're bored.
