13 years ago, the Abes moved to a district surrounded by nature in the outskirts. They were a family of three. A French father, Tomah; Japanese mother, Mikiko; and their young beautiful daughter Yuko. They seemed to be the happy, perfect family. One day, Mikiko sends Yuko to an audition for a CM. Discovered by Murano, the creative director of the CM, Yuko enters show business. Several years later, Yuko, who has joined a leading entertainment agency, finally gets her break just as her mother always wanted. She appears on magazine front covers, TV dramas, variety programmes and CMs. As Yuko rapidly becomes popular, she feels a strong sense of discomfort with the gap between the image she has cultivated in public and her own self. In the midst of this, she meets Masaaki, a dancer who lives life without pandering to the public, and becomes absorbed in romance. However, that is the start of a nightmare that will derail everything … …
