Kohei Kaji is a new substitute teacher at a school where he meets a troubled girl who he tries to help. Following her seemingly random death, Tamako Tsumiki, a lawyer, goes to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of the student and the means that people will go to cover up the truth.
Tamako Tsumiki, is a lawyer investigating various ongoings in schools, especially those concerning the methods people will go to hide what is considered "dirty laundry". After Aizawa's accident, she attempts to visit her in the hospital but is told that Aizawa can not currently see anyone. Later on she and Kachi find a locker with Aizawa's books in them. To both of their surprise, Kaji and Tsumiki see the word "die" written all over her books, leading to think that she may have been pushed from the window and not fallen as an accident. When the two go to the school to show the books to the vice principal, they are told that Aizawa has died.
Tsumiki's boyfriend is Seri Naoyuki who is also a lawyer. He proposes to her in the first episode and she is unable to give an answer right away due to being somewhat distraught by Aizawa's death. She is 30 years old.
Kohei Kaji is a new substitute teacher in the school, he often tries to get his students into learning and has a generally positive attitude towards them.
