Ningen no Shoumei, starring Watanabe Ken, is a suspense drama remake of the original movie, that starred Matsuda Yuusaku. Detective Munesue solves the mystery of a black youth who was stabbed to death in a crowded bustling city. While he proceeds with the investigation, relying on a Saijou Yaso poetry anthology, and the words "kiss me" which were left behind by the victim, he discovers the sad past of a certain woman.
