Hideki Sato, heir to a family-run chemical industries company, is kidnapped. The ransom is the “Tear of Florence”, a legendary diamond long thought to be lost.

This triggers a tsunami of events by the kidnappers, a coup from within the company, & brings to light the mysterious past of the Tear of Florence.
