Fuji TV's hit police drama series
Unfair comes to the big screen, with Shinohara Ryoko
reprising her memorable role as a tough female cop. Based on a Hata
Takehiko novel, both the film and the drama are carried brilliantly
by force of its strong female protagonist, whose fearless,
peerless, no-nonsense demeanor is both refreshing and liberating.
This crime action flick about a lone woman in a man's world throws
a mean punch without forgetting the human side of the story.
Kobayashi Yoshinori, who directed the television series, also helms
this silver-screen adaptation.
Hardboiled, hard-drinking, and hard-hitting female
detective Yukihira Natsumi (Shinohara Ryoko) has the best record in
the police force, but it has come at a cost. Her fiercely
independent personality and penchant to not go by the books has
alienated her from colleagues, while her dedication, or perhaps
obsession, with work has already cost her a marriage and custody of
her eight-year-old daughter. Natsumi has no time for apologies and
misgivings though when there is crime to be fought. She is forced
to reconsider everything she knows, however, when terrorists take
over the hospital her daughter is being treated at. How far will
she go to save her daughter?
