Leading attorney Shigemori takes on the defense of murder-robbery suspect Misumi who served jail time for another murder 30 years ago. Shigemori's chances of winning the case seem low - his client freely admits his guilt, despite facing the death penalty if he is convicted. As he digs deeper into the case, as he hears the testimonies of the victim's family and Misumi himself, the once confident Shigemori begins to doubt whether his client is the murderer after all.

"The Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda has a quietly seductive way of finding the sublime in the mundane."
Joe Morgenstern - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"For Kore-eda, an essential truth about life lies in the accumulation of unexplainable incidents and facts."
Bilge Ebiri - VILLAGE VOICE

"The back and forths between accused and lawyer are among the movie's most enthralling scenes, largely because the soft-featured Mr. Yakusho - lips lightly curling - can make a nice smile seem positively terrifying."
Manohla Dargis - NEW YORK TIMES
