Into The White Night

A pawnbroker in Osaka called Yosuke (Ayumu Saito) is found murdered in the year 1980 and Detective Sasagaki (Eichiro Funakoshi) is assigned to investigate the case. Yosuke has a son called Ryoji (Kengo Kora) and wife (Keiko Toda).

Initial investigation leads to Yosuke's mistress called Fumiyo (Yorie Yamashita) who has a daughter called Yukiho (Mari Horikita). It is not known to him that Ryoji and Yukiho are each other’s first love and had traumatic past.

Soon Fumiyo is found dead at her home. Due to lack of evidence both cases are listed as suicides. However, Detective Sasagaki is not convinced and there has been an attempt by someone to poison him in a cafe.

The truth is that both Ryoji and Yukiho are responsible for these deaths; Ryoji took his father's life when he found out Yukiho was sexually abused by him and Yukiho killed her own mother as she allowed her own daughter to be continuously abused by Yosuke.

Both are determined to cover up their own crimes and Detective Sasagaki is determined to solve the murder puzzles even after nearly 20 years and past his retirement age as he never believed the case as suicides. Will the two get caught in the end?
