The death of his daughter shattered the family of HIGUCHI Katsu. Divorced and lost in a fog of depression and alcoholism, he stumbles through each day until he gets notice that their daughter’s murderer, FUKUDA Kana, is going to get a retrial that may have her sentence reduced. Fired up with anger and indignation, he recruits his reluctant ex-wife Sumiko, now remarried and trying to move on, in an effort to work with the prosecution to keep Kana locked up.

Is forgiveness possible following the death of a child? “December” provides a compelling answer in a taut courtroom drama where the cast drag up emotions of rage, remorse, and readjustment in riveting performances where each of the key players faces up to the need for redemption following a harrowing tragedy.
