Outline

In Japan, 80,000 people a year disappear. In this socially themed drama about a duo of detectives, the new recruit MUGINO and the brilliant TERASAKI set about to ind a wide range of missing persons. Under their detective agency’s banner of “Specialists in finding people,” the two use the evidence left behind and the psychology of the missing as clues, becoming ever-more involved in a battle of wits and test of wills with the missing who have their various reasons to not be found.
