Do you have a teacher you will never forget?
An ordinary looking school and a typical classroom. So many students have passed through it over the years; as have many battle-scarred teachers. A message on the blackboard embodies three dramatic periods in Japan’s postmodern history. There was the time just after World War II, the economic miracle that followed, and the recent devastating earthquake and tsunami. Viewed from three fascinating and iconoclastic teachers living through these three revolutionary milestones moments, here is a story that drives at the heart of education. What did these children learn? What were the adults able to impart to them? What does it mean to be Japanese? And what are the hopes and dreams of people of all ages?

Always at each other’s throats and in each other’s hair, the two still somehow manage to grow and get things right in this seriously passionate yet equally comical legal drama. Armed with their strong convictions and skills as “legal technicians”, this odd couple fight to promote true justice and protect the weak. And the law be damned!
