Yuichi Mafune is known as a finance broker, but he's actually a con man. One day, two men show up at his door. One man is M and the other is his underling Yuki Seki. They ask Yuichi to steal a longheld legendary treasure trove that includes massive amounts of gold and other stolen loot from World War II,  and is now hidden in the basement of a Japanese bank. The secret treasure was then taken by the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces to fund secret operations.

Yuichi accepts the proposal after hearing of the large fee offered if successful. In order to steal the "M funds," which Yuichi isn't even sure if it exists, "M" plans an unprecedented money game which brings in interests from the U.S., Russia and other places. This film is based on an original story by Harutoshi Fukui with a screenplay co-written by Fukui and Sakamoto. It marks the second time the two filmmakers have collaborated; Sakamoto’s 2005 film AEGIS was based on a novel by Fukui.THE HUMAN TRUST is a star-studded thriller with a top-notch international cast.
