  The domestique forces an opening. The escort and support cover. The sprinter seizes the advantage - strikes To The Fore. A professional cycling team moves with the speed and power of military Special Forces. Each member plays a tactical role, motivated by a single strategy. Victory belongs to the team, not the individual.

  The balletic interplay between team Radiant’s brilliant sprinter, Zheng Zhiyuan, and the two domestiques Chou Ming and Qiu Tian has won them countless victories, including the defeat of archrival Phantom.

  The team’s success is undermined when competition heats up within, between the three riders, each aspiring to be number one. As the code of teamwork fall by the wayside, succumbing to individual ego and ambition, who’s going to cross the finish line first?

  A female escort attending a party gets hit by a car on the street behind the Neustrian Embassy and dies. Public prosecutor Kuryu of the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office Josai Branch and Administrative Official Chika Asagi question the driver who hit the victim. Then, out of the blue, Kuryu’s ex-Administrative Official Maiko Amamiya appears. As a public prosecutor of the Osaka District Public Prosecutors Office Namba Branch, Amamiya is pursuing a key witness in a bribery case involving the yakuza, who happens to be the victim of the hit-and-run at the embassy. They realize this was no ordinary accident. While Kuryu and Amamiya launch a joint investigation, Amamiya is dismayed that Kuryu hasn’t changed one bit after all these years. Kuryu attempts to question the staff at the Neustria Embassy about circumstances surrounding the date of the accident, but he is promptly denied. Embassies operate outside the reach of Japanese law, like foreign countries on Japanese soil. To infringe upon these international rights, even in a quest for justice, would be detrimental to diplomatic relations. But Kuryu refuses to give up and continues to approach the embassy with no success, until an official of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs begins to apply pressure to drop the investigation. Kuryu is up against a formidable wall – the inviolable territory called an “embassy.”
