FAKE NEWS

Synopsis
Itsuki (Keiko KITAGAWA) is a journalist who is transferred from a major newspaper company to an internet news media. She starts to cover an incident in which an anonymous consumer posted criticism on social media that he found a caterpillar in an instant noodle he had bought. This post sparks a chain of events that eventually leads to a big dispute between the food company and its rival company.
In order to get more page views, the chief editor Usami (Hirofumi ARAI) orders Itsuki to come up with a sensational title for her article. But it goes against her beliefs as a journalist and she wants to take time to gather more evidence.
The truth is easily bent when people react to incidents by taking sides, forming a convenient public opinion that people want to believe. Itsuki seeks for the truth as she herself risks becoming the target of criticism.
