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.
