A gripping court room drama and might even be said to be an indictment of the Japanese legal system.
A man is accused of groping a female student in a crowded train. His innocence is put to the test when he was first accused and brought into custody. The conditions when he was remanded seem such a harsh reality check for someone caught in the legal web and his efforts in securing a release so futile. But with the help of his good friend, mother and a team of defense lawyers, he might be able to escape a prison sentence.
An eye opener of how the legal system works. It might be the same situation elsewhere too.
