Tokuro Akamatsu can’t believe it when a vehicle of his freight company causes a fatal accident. Faulty maintenance is suspected, but he requests that its manufacturer, Hope Motors, carry out new tests. Yuta Sawada from Hope Motors is initially dismissive of Akamatsu’s demands, until his colleagues’ secretive behavior arouses his curiosity.
