Two detectives are assigned to investigate the murder of a 60-year-old policeman at the Tokyo Railway Station. The victim is well-liked and benevolent and there does not seem to be any motivation to the murder. A further investigation finally leads to the discovery of the hidden past of a young rising composer. The original novel by Matsumoto Seicho on which the film is based has been a bestseller in Japan. The adaptation by Yamada Yoji (of the Tora-san series fame) and director Nomura Toshitaro skillfully incorporates the elements of melodrama, suspense and thriller to form a tightly structured human drama about someone who attempts to escape from his past but fails.
