Synopsis: Miori Reiko (Amami Yuki) is a top model who has captivated the world with a beauty praised as the Pearl of the Orient. But at the same time, she is also a star that attracts media attention due to constant scandals resulting from her eccentric behaviour and record of uninhibited romances. One day, Reiko is discovered dead in her own room. The first person to make the discovery is her housekeeper Ohta Michiko (Kimura Midoriko). Potassium cyanide is detected in Reiko’s body and the police open an investigation.
