Japan's favorite hard-boiled but bungling detective Maiku Hama (Masatoshi Nagase) returns for the third time in this disturbing crime drama. As the lurid tale begins, Hama-san is enjoying a rare good period in his life. With plenty of new clients he finally makes a decent wage. His new girlfriend Yuriko is mute and but for her being a Christian convert, offers him a lot of fun. But when he learns that a crazed killer has been poisoning women around the city and planting Hama's fingerprints on their corpses, the intrepid gumshoe must leave his cozy office behind the movie theater projection booth to clear his name.
