Lens is a dark, cynical character of this world. With his special ability of unknown origin, under the influence of a drug, he can burn the pictures of the past and the future into photosensitive paper. Lens hates the present because he understands the past and sees the future.

He sells his ability as an outlaw private detective. One day the position of the oppressing power seems to get unstable as some strictly confidential documents are stolen from the home of the president of the Golden Dimension. Ironically, it is the specially skilled Lens who gets the task to find the person who could ruin the oppressing system by using the stolen incriminating evidence. When he gets to the robbery scene it’s all set up for the experiment. He administers his drug, sticks the photosensitive paper on his nape and waits for the vision to come…By retrieving the pictures of the past, Lens finds out the identity of the unknown thief and even gets a glimpse of some images from the near future. But this future offers nothing good for Lens: he is facing a gun and gets a bullet into his forehead. Is it possible for Lens to put together the pieces of his visions, can he catch the thief and prevent his own violent death?
