    • Synopsis
    • During a street parade in Sendai, Kaneda – the first member of the long-time opposition party to be elected Prime Minister – is assassinated by a remote-detonated helicopter bomb. At the same time, Aoyagi, a courier, receives a phone call from his old friend Morita. The two men meet, and Morita seems panicky – as though he were being chased. He foresees the events that unveil and warns Aoyagi that, “You’re going to be like Oswald with the Kennedy assassination.” He then tells him to run. The police arrive, target their guns at Aoyagi, kill Morita on the spot, and Aoyagi finds himself framed as an assassin. As a fugitive on the run and wanted across Japan, the only people he can trust are his old college girlfriend Haruko and a few close friends.
