Synopsis

Set amid the backdrop of a daily life that could be anyone’s, this crime-suspense masterpiece depicts heroines who commit an unprecedented crime with overwhelming speed and on a grand scale.
The protagonist is Naomi Oda, a determined career woman who works very hard in the sales department of a department store. Kanako Hattori is a kind, unassuming housewife and Naomi’s friend from their university days.
However, in reality, every day is depressing for Naomi, as she doesn’t enjoy her job. Meanwhile, Kanako spends her days enduring terrible physical abuse from her husband.
Cornered by a reality that is hard to accept, the two of them come up with an extreme solution.
“Why don’t we just kill your husband?”
Is it revenge, survival, or self-fulfillment?
The two women throw in their lots and become partners-in-crime, forming a plan to murder Kanako’s husband. Unpredictable, suspenseful twists, and several other plot threads run through this tale of sweet revenge.
Based on the bountiful landscape of women’s minds and the deeds of people hiding in modern society, this is a white-knuckle story of genuine suspense with dazzling developments. The curtain rises on an unprecedented murderous tragedy.
