Hiyori Makino is a rookie detective whose dream comes true when she is assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division. One day, the precinct police see an anonymously-posted clip on the Internet that shows a person being burned to death. The police treat it as a possible copycat crime of a burning homicide that occurred five years ago. Hoping to consult Soichiro Natsume, the retried detective who headed the original investigation, Hiyori arrives at an antiquated, western style house in an upscale residential district where she finds Natsume sharing the house with four other elderly ex-cops, all quite eccentric like himself. Hiyori commences the meeting and quickly realizes that despite their aging vision, back pain and high blood pressure, these gentlemen still possess razor sharp sleuthing skills. Together, they set about cracking tough cases each week in this new detective drama.
