Synopsis

A veteran jailbird has been released from prison for murder...and subsequently confesses to killing his factory-owning boss and burning the body. There's no question that Misumi (Yakusho Koji) is guilty and it's the job of lawyer Shigemori (Fukuyama Masaharu) to get him a life sentence instead of the death penalty. However, Misumi keeps changing his story, throwing doubt over the whole case.
