Takashi Muto (Tetsuji Tamayama) still can't forget about his sister's murderer and wants to take revenge, but this gets difficult as the murderer kills himself. During this revengeful mindset, he somehow seems to get pulled back into the world of dealing with criminal mastery and deception. However, he feels that he’s not the right man for this kind of job, as he once tried to kill his sister’s murderer.
Takashi realizes that there's something strange about the ransom incident involving the daughter of Kohei Tamura（Masahiro Komoto）. He repeatedly approaches him, to investigate more about the incident, however, Kohei keeps pushing Takashi away from him for fear of provoking his child's kidnapper again. Kohei Tamura states that the 5 million yen which he remitted to the kidnapper "Genius "（Jun Kaname）, was just a coincidence, but Takashi finds this hard to believe. Was the 5 million yen that Genius demanded to Kohei unplanned?
Meanwhile, "Genius" who’s behind all of this starts planning his new evil plot...
During all this Sakiko (Mimura) has absolutely no idea, that the kids she's been looking after, were Genius’s kidnapped children.
