A fierce typhoon strikes Tokyo one night, flooding the city streets. Someone unlawfully removes a manhole cover, and a little boy out searching for a lost pet goes missing, possibly drowned in the sewers. Is it murder or accidental? These events bring together a struggling journalist named Kosaka, who is grappling with the ghosts of his past, and two young men who may or may not have psychic powers. The three form an unwilling team not only to search for the lost boy but also to solve a second mystery involving Kosaka's former fiancee. Kosaka's career and personal life have stagnated since his breakup with Saeko a few years earlier, and locked him in an emotional impasse. The two young men-Shinji and Naoya-each wrestle to come to terms with their unique powers ('the dragon within'). Both have trouble keeping girlfriends, as their extraordinary powers continually scare off potential romance. While Shinji wants to use his abilities to help others, Naoya wants to cloak his. Kosaka, meanwhile, doubts the young men's ability, all-too-clearly aware that such claims of psychic knowledge of the crimes could in reality mask a criminal culpability. But then all three are forced into an unsteady alliance to try to save the life of someone close to Kosaka.
