[ Story ]

An emotionally-scarred war photographer, Nishizaki Yuji (Osawa Takao) witnesses a fighter plane crashing in the Northern Alps. It was an American stealth bomber, commonly known as the "Midnight Eagle". Nishizaki heads towards the crash site with Ochiai Shinichiro (Tamaki Hiroshi), a newspaper journalist, but they get caught in a battle between agents from another country on a mission to set off a special bomb on board the stealth bomber, and troops of the Self-Defense Forces trying to recover the bomb. The pair, together with a Self-Defense Forces survivor, Saeki Akihiko (Yoshida Eisaku), succeed in stopping the timing device, but Ochiai is shot dead by an agent. In order to prevent the agents from re-starting the timing device, Nishizaki and Saeki request an attack on the stealth bomber by cruise missiles, knowing it will also kill them, and Japan is saved from an unprecedented danger.
Based on a novel of the same title by Takashima Tetsuo, who is an ex-researcher at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute. It was screened as the opening film in the Special Screening section at the Tokyo International Film Festival in 2007.
