Ango Ishikawa (Shun Oguri) is a detective with smarts and a keen sense of observation. He's in a great physical shape and also highly ambitious. Ango also only focuses on his work and his personal life is pretty much non-existent.

One day, a former police officer is killed by a gun shot. Ango goes to the scene of the crime, but is shot in the head by the killer who is lurking at the crime scene. Ango hovers between life and death. At that time, he thinks to himself "where do people go after they die?" and then "I don't want to die." A miracle then happens. Anglo survives with the bullet still lodged in his head. He goes back to work.

A new murder case takes place. When Ango goes to the crime scene he notices a boy who looks like he is about to cry, but only Ango is able to see the boy. The boy is the one who was killed. Since Ango was shot, he can now see and talk with the dead.

Ango Ishikawa (Shun Oguri) adalah detektif dengan kecerdasan dan pengamatan yang tajam. Dia dalam bentuk fisik yang hebat dan juga sangat ambisius. Ango juga hanya fokus pada pekerjaannya dan kehidupan pribadinya hampir tidak ada.

Suatu hari, seorang mantan polisi tewas oleh tembakan senapan. Ango pergi ke TKP, tetapi ditembak di kepala oleh pembunuh yang sedang bersembunyi di TKP. Ango melayang di antara hidup dan mati. Pada saat itu, dia berpikir untuk dirinya sendiri "ke mana orang pergi setelah mereka mati?" dan kemudian "Saya tidak ingin mati." Keajaiban kemudian terjadi. Anglo bertahan dengan peluru yang masih bersarang di kepalanya. Dia kembali bekerja.

Sebuah kasus pembunuhan baru terjadi. Ketika Ango pergi ke TKP ia melihat seorang anak laki-laki yang kelihatannya akan menangis, tetapi hanya Ango yang dapat melihat bocah itu. Anak laki-laki itulah yang terbunuh. Sejak Ango ditembak, dia sekarang bisa melihat dan berbicara dengan orang mati.
