A mysterious unfeeling killing machine named Ichiro Suzuki commits murders in the name of justice. When he’s caught by a veteran detective named Chaya after turning a woman into a human bomb, forensic psychiatrist Mariko Washiya determines that Suzuki is a genius who’s able to carry out his murders with calculated precision while remaining completely devoid of human emotion.

As Chaya continues his investigation, he comes to realize that Suzuki was not the only bomber, but simply a vigilante punishing those responsible for a previous rash of bombings throughout the city. Soon Noriko, partner of the woman Suzuki killed, kidnaps Dr. Washiya in an attempt to draw him out.
