Shigemori, a respected lawyer, takes on a hopeless client who is threatened with the death penalty for murder. 30 years ago, he had already committed a similar crime, and now admits his guilt. Regardless, Shigemori tries to find mitigating circumstances. The deeper he gets to the root of the case, the more conflicted it becomes, and conversation with the defendant forces Shigemori to feel a strange, almost mysterious closeness for him.

A detective drama by a laureate of both Cannes and San Sebastián and Palme d’Or and Golden Lion nominee, Hirokazu Korea. The film was part of the concourse programme at the Venice Film Festival.
