In April 1986, an orientation is being conducted for Sangyo Chuo Bank's new employees. The last course is practical training on financing strategy for the two outstanding teams. The leaders for the respective teams are Kaido Akira and Yamazaki Akira who are both graduates of Tokyo University. Kaido's team is the company applying for a loan while Yamazaki's team is the bank scrutinising the application. Kaido's proposal is beyond anyone's imagination but Yamazaki sees through this. The two of them commend each other for putting up a good fight, and this becomes the stuff of legend that gets passed down from generation to generation. As the son of the owner of one of Japan's leading companies, Kaido was born with an easy life and is promised a future as the next company president. On the other hand, the genius Yamazaki suffered hardships after his father's company went bankrupt and their family had to run away at night. The two of them have created their own lives and joined the same bank. In fact, their lives had even crossed paths before this. But they have yet to realise this fact. Kaido and Yamazaki motivate each other as good friends and rivals as they overcome difficulties. And then, in what can only be described as cruel "destiny", a punishing ordeal drops on them. The time turns back to 1975 when their lives began intersecting... -- Jdrama Weblog
