Hiroshi Bando (Yuji Oda) works as a credit officer for a large bank. At the bank, opinions are divided over whether an additional loan to a giant supermarket chain should be approved. Hiroshi opposes the loan due to the supermarket's non-existent efforts to restructure.
Meanwhile, Vice President of Planning Department, Tetsuya Ninohe (Masanobu Takashima), insists on approving the loan. He believes if the supermarket goes bankrupt than it will effect the bank itself. Also, Tetsuya has a strong dislike of Hiroshi. Tetsuya then devises a scheme that will get Hiroshi in trouble.
At this time, a store of the giant supermarket chain is blown up. A message from the perpetrator arrives. The bomber demands the resignation of the supermarket CEO, Kozo kazama (Raita Ryu). The CEO runs the supermarket in a dictatorial management style. If the demand the bomber's demand is not met, the bomber will carry out more explosions. The supermarket tries to coverup the bomber's demand as they fear the collapse of their company stock. Hiroshi though insists fiercely that the bomber's message should go public.
Detective Hiromitsu Yaen (Itsuji Itao) begins to suspect a young man named Ko Inunaki (Koji Seto) as the bomber. Ko Inunaki was at the scene of the crime.


Based on the novel "Kabuka Boraku" by Jun Ikeido (published March, 2004 by Bungeishunju Ltd.).

thanks so much for sharing this - I tend to be a WOWOW fan, and it's just great to be able to also watch the less popular dramas
the close-down reminds us all how unusual and how very much a luxury this was, in fact
sincere thanks
