1980. A pawnbroker is murdered and his body is discovered in a dilapidated house. The prime suspects are his widow Yaeko and her lover Isao, who also worked at the pawn shop. But the pawnbroker's son, ten-year-old Ryouji, claims they were both watching television with him when the crime occurred. The young boy's pensive and mature face gives Detective Superintendent Sasagaki pause. Further investigations reveal the pawnbroker visited a woman named Fumiyo before he died.
