Inquiry

Print

It happened in December 45 years ago. Amid pouring rain, a man pretending to be a motorcycle cop robbed an armored car making off with 300 million yen and pulling off one of the most notorious heists in Japanese history. The case has never been solved. Fast forward to present time and to the 2nd Crime Division of prefectural police headquarters in charge of reining in political corruption. Kurokochi isn't a gangster or a street punk. He's a fearless and brash "detective" who has a knack for finding the vulnerabilities of politicians and extracting from them large sums of money which he then puts toward solving heinous crimes. A lone wolf without a partner or subordinates in what is dubbed "the police's underside," Kurokochi is something of a dark hero who knows how to fight fire with fire. But a huge shadow haunts him. Where is that 300 million yen now? Who really did it? Inside the police department are secrets buried under secrets. The crime drama of a lifetime begins right here.

Sakura Konotori lost his mother at his own birth and, as a result, grew up in an orphanage. Now he works as an obstetrician fueled by a deep love and yearning to “celebrate each and every baby that comes into the world”. But he is also something of a mystery, leading another life as a concert pianist who goes by the nickname “Baby” and plays with a passion that borders on brilliance. A delicate and realistic portrayal about the front lines of childbirth, Storks delivers a heartwarming drama that reflects upon the meaning and miracle of life.
