This drama portrays the problems facing the modern mass media by simulating a true story of the U.S.A. in Japan. Shinobu Otake is back after a long break away from the series.
Hiroko Egami is a single woman who works as a journalist covering the city news at an urban newspaper publisher. Shinobu Otake takes the role of Hiroko and performs the life of a woman who is burdened with a dark past.
Exhausted and impatient after chasing up one scoop after another, Hiroko decides to play her trump card; she writes about the tragic experience of a young girl called Megumi in a regular column "The Solitude in the City." Titled "The World of Megumi," the story receives high acclaim and wins the Press Club Union Award. However, the industry becomes abound with rumours that "The World of Megumi" is entirely fictitious. The drama is worth watching for Shinobu Otake's performance alone, playing the passionate and vulnerable but defiant Hiroko.
