    • Synopsis
    • Year 2017, Japan. Highly advanced DNA investigation was about to bring 100% criminal arresting and 0% false charge society. Such investigation was backed-up by the DNA data of the people (“Platina Data”) which was gathered confidentially as a National policy.
      Ryuhei Kagura (Kazuya Ninomiya) is a criminal investigation specialist at the “Special Analyzing and Researching Firm” which was newly founded by the National Police Department. He never investigates the scene like normal cops, but helps them out by using the DNA investigation method. One day, a serial killing case “NF 13 (Not Found 13”) which can not be solved by DNA investigation occurs, and finally, the Tateshinas (brother and sister), who invented the DNA investigation system is murdered. Kagura extracts the DNA data from a hair left at the criminal scene, however, the result shown on the computer says “Ryuhei Kagura 99.99% matching”! Kagura suddenly becomes “the chased one” from “the chaser” by his own DNA investigation.
      Reiji Asama (Etsushi Toyokawa) is the officer in charge of the missing Kagura case. He is a highly experienced cop who has always questioned the DNA investigation. He places high priority on investigating the scene but not using DNA methods, and looks after the missing Kagura thoroughly. Kagura tries to escape from Asam’s investigation. Chasing the missing Kagura case, Asama finds out about a secret of Kagura. Is Kagura really the murder of this case?
