He would pretend to be a serial bomber who has recently been committing several crimes. He sent a bomb threat by email to the university to delay the start of the exam. Keisuke's plan was a success and he finally passed.
The following days were like a dream until suddenly, a suspicious man appeared in front of Keisuke. "I know all about you," he said. Keisuke's life becomes hell. Desperate to escape the constant extortion, the broken Keisuke turns murderous and makes a bold decision.
