In Japan, 80,000 people a year disappear. In this socially themed drama about a duo of de- tectives, the new recruit MUGINO and the brilliant TERASAKI set about to nd a wide range of missing persons. Under their detective agency’s banner of “Specialists in nding peo- ple,” the two use the evidence left behind and the psychology of the missing as clues, be- coming ever-more involved in a battle of wits and test of wills with the missing who have their various reasons to not be found.
