Violent Japanese drama based on the true story of a murderer whose crimes led to a 78-day manhunt. Iwao Enokizu (Ken Ogata), a middle-aged labourer from a devoutly Catholic background, seems an unlikely source of danger. However, Iwao is possessed with an urge to kill that finally expresses itself in a deadly attack on two of his work colleagues. With his rage unleashed, Iwao embarks on a killing spree that quickly makes him the country's most wanted man. However, the killer also possesses cunning. He disguises himself as a university professor, before entering into a relationship with an innkeeper, Haru (Mayumi Ogawa), but will he be able to elude justice indefinitely?
