Details
Makoto Kido is an antisocial, somewhat misanthropic schoolteacher who is seen as a lazy and boring slouch by his students. After he is involved in a hostage situation with his students and meets police chief Yamashita, he goes home and watches a Tokyo Giants game which is interrupted in the third quarter. Snapping, this makes him build a nuclear bomb to detonate in Tokyo Bay. The teacher them phones in the bomb threat to Yamashita, who has no idea who the culprit is but is ruthless enough to do anything to find out.
