Synopsis: One night, a minivan stops next to a lone house in the countryside of Kurume City in Fukuoka Prefecture. Tanaka Naoko (Otake Shinobu), Akikawa Minako (Terajima Shinobu) and Murai Kasumi (Sakai Maki) are in the van. After a few moments, the three of them are summoned by Ando Yasuko (Kimura Tae). They enter the house, insert a nasogastric tube for medical use into the sleeping man’s nose and pour whiskey. The women go about their job without uttering a word. After confirming that the man’s heartbeat has stopped, they leave the house. This is Yasuko’s family home and the murdered man is her husband, Atsushi (Terajima Susumu). Naoko, Minako, Kasumi and Yasuko met at Seiai Nursing School when they were in their teens. After graduating, the four of them went separate ways. When Minako was 28, she met Naoko again. Naoko offered kind words to Minako who was battered both physically and mentally. Minako started to open up. The two of them began to live together. After that, Minako was saved time and again by Naoko who guessed her predicament correctly. Although Minako half believed it, she was told Naoko’s secret. Falling for the make-believe story, she gradually trusted in Naoko’s words and completely submitted herself to Naoko’s control. A special relationship was formed. Minako became Naoko’s first target. Next, Naoko solved a problem that Kasumi had at the hospital when Kasumi was cornered. Kasumi was won over just like Minako. Then Naoko learned that Yasuko suspected her husband of having an affair. Fixated with money, she instigated the intent to kill Yasuko’s husband with thorough preparation. The four of them finally crossed the line to become murderers. What is the ending for these nurses whose lives have been derailed because of their involvement with Naoko?
