    • Synopsis
    • Solving that problem won’t make anyone happy”
      It appeared to be a perfect crime ― until Yukawa, a brilliant physicist was brought onto help with the case.
      Elaborate bluffs, false testimonials, loopholes in logic – all begin to appear in Yukawa’s way as if intentionally placed as a challenge by someone with mathematical brilliance.
      Yukawa soon senses his old friend, whom he considers a “true genius” is somehow connected to this murder case.
      “Which is more difficult? Inventing an unsolvable problem, or solving one.”
      But the two geniuses for the first time realize that pursuing the truth does not always lead to the right “answer”, and that there are more to life than just logic and numbers.
