    • Synopsis
    • A man is stabbed to death in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi area. The victim, Takeaki Aoyagi (Kiichi Nakai) staggers with the knife still in the wound for eight minutes before collapsing under the winged statues of two kirin on the famous Nihonbashi Bridge. He did not seek assistance; where was he going? The suspect, on the other hand, is now in a coma, having fled the scene and been hit by a truck. On hearing this news, his girlfriend Kaori Nakahara (Yui Aragaki) insists that he is innocent. The case falls to Kyoichiro Kaga (Hiroshi Abe), known as a brilliant detective. Kaga realizes that behind this apparently open-and-shut case is a tangled web of mystery entangling both victim and suspect, as well as their families. What was the victim thinking as he died? And will Kaga unravel the ultimate mystery at the heart of the case?
