Plot Synopsis by DramaWiki Staff ©

The case starts with the discovery of a brutally murdered man beneath an embankment on a dry winter’s day. Among the onlookers is an elderly samurai Kazama Gorozaemon (Kato Go) who gazes at the corpse with a piercing stare. Because the dead body is identified as that of the accountant Takahata Rokusuke (Tsuda Kanji) of the Ueharas of Ganganosawa in Dewa Province, the murderer appears to be Amemiya Jisaburo (Yashima Norito) who was expelled from the same household recently. In fact, Jisaburo has been pursuing Gorozaemon, a former samurai of the Uehara clan and his father’s enemy, for a long time. 23 years ago, Gorozaemon was discovered by Jisaburo’s father after he had just slipped into the mansion in order to gather proof related to the chief retainer’s life and the misappropriation of the family’s money by the Edo-based deputy, and had to kill him out of necessity. Edo magistrate Ooka Tadasuke (Higashiyama Noriyuki) feels the complexity of the family’s situation which dates back 23 years ago in this present case. Then one day, Gorozaemon shows up all of a sudden and claims that he was the one who killed Rokusuke with his sword. What is the truth of the murder and how will Ooka try this case?
