What if an unsuccessful manga artist sees the face of a murderer? And what if he draws a comic book with that face as a "character" and the comic becomes a smash-hit? Experience a dark entertainment that no one has ever seen before!
The protagonist, Keigo Yamashiro, who comes across the scene of a family murder while on a sketching trip and witnesses the murderer, is played by Masaki Suda, who has won various film awards including the 41st Japan Academy Film Prize for Best Actor, and is remarkably active as one of the best young actors. With his solid acting skills, he delicately plays the role of a talentless manga artist who is tormented by his inability to depict people's evil due to his good-natured heart, and is tossed by fate when he meets a murderer.
The genius murderer Morozumi, who meets Yamashiro and destroys his fate, is played by SEKAI NO OWARI's vocalist FUKASE, who is making his acting debut in this film. This year marks the 10th anniversary of his major label debut, and as an actor, he passionately plays the role, a unique and beautiful character whose existence is shrouded in mystery.
Keigo Yamashiro, dreams of becoming a successful manga artist. Despite his high drawing ability, he is unable to draw realistic villainous characters due to his overly good-natured personality, and has been living the life of an assistant all his life. One day, at the request of his boss, Keigo sets out to sketch "a house that looks happy to anyone who sees it”. What he sees there are dead bodies of a family - and standing in front of them is a man.
Keigo, the first person to discover the murder, lies to the police, saying that he never saw the murderer's face. On the contrary, he creates the main character "Dagger", a murderer based on the murderer that only he knows, and starts drawing a thriller manga called "34". The manga, which depicts the real "evil" that Keigo lacked, becomes a big hit. Keigo then becomes a successful manga artist and marries his girlfriend Natsumi.
However, as if modeled after the story depicted in the manga "34," a series of incidents occur in which a family of four is targeted one after another. Detective Shunsuke Kiyota becomes suspicious of the striking resemblance between the manga and the cases, and turns his attention to Keigo.
Then, that man appears in front of Yamashiro again.
