A woman is found dead but no one can make sense of what exactly happened. A Detective is called to unravel a complicated puzzle.

A woman is found strangled to death in an apartment whose tenant is missing. Detective Matsumiya has a hunch that a charred corpse found nearby the murder scene may have some relevance to the case, and subsequently discovers an item with the names of Nihonbashi’s 12 bridges written on it. When Kyoichiro Kaga learns of this, he is deeply shaken.

JP, 2018, 119 min., Dir. Katsuo Fukuzawa
