Storyline

It is the job of the press to cover corporate crime, government plots and society. It is in this context that young female reporter on the beat Erika rolls up her sleeves and goes to work regarding what seems to be a government cover up. She is dealing with a government bureaucrat called Sugihara. It seems as if a clash is inevitable. Written by aghaemi

25 February 2020 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

I put 5 stars due to the other commentator point of view, that is good; if not I would let 4 or 3 stars. The Director is not good; the acting is poor and the story board is barely cohesive. But the "Perception" of the evil of the "Power" and the sordid mechanisms that only prejudice the weakest link is what is important here. Japan is a great Country because of their people not because of the Power itself. Yes; is other type of Democracy but I live in a country where populism is at the Control and nothing good happened. Social problems everywhere.
