[ Story ]

Masaya Kakei attends a low-ranked university, a situation he finds depressing. One day he receives a letter from Yamato Haimura, a high-profile serial murderer convicted and sentenced to death for nine of the twenty-four killings he'd been accused of. Before his capture, Yamato ran a local bakery, which Masaya frequented while attending junior high school. Reaching out to Masaya, Yamato freely admits his guilt but insists the ninth conviction was a frameup and implores him to find the true killer. As Masaya delves into the case, the truth proves to be cruel beyond imagination.
