A newly compiled DVD features a dramatic re-enactment of how police coerced a man during interrogation in 1963 to confess to the murder of a 16-year-old high school girl in Sayama, Saitama Prefecture.

The drama was based on the actual audio recordings of the police questioning of 24-year-old Kazuo Ishikawa, who eventually was sentenced to life in prison. After more than 30 years behind bars, he was paroled in 1994 and is now seeking exoneration.

The tapes were disclosed by prosecutors in 2010 as Ishikawa, now 78, goes through the process of trying to get a retrial over the high-profile incident, which came to be known as "the Sayama Case."
