    WHISTLEBLOWER looks at the tendency of Japanese corporations to sacrifice those employees at the bottom. A seemingly lazy businessman takes a stand to reveal the corruption running rampant throughout his corporation. STORY Sakado (Ainosuke Kataoka), #1 sales section chief for the manufacturer Tokyo Kenden, is asked to step down due to his harassment of a slacker employee named Yasumi (Mansai Nomura). Harashima (Mitsuhiro Oikawa), the #2 section chief who has come to terms with always being second best to Sakado, is promoted to the #1 spot. However, the position conceals an unimaginably dark secret for the company...
