Story
Five years ago, actor Tanashiro Kenjiro apologised all of a sudden at a press conference, and said he was having an affair with popular top actress Fujisaki Sara. He cried as he knelt down on the ground. Beside him, a stunned Sara shouted, “Why are you telling such a lie?!” She was completely innocent. But the media condemned her for being unapologetic to his family. Sara claimed she was not engaging in an affair but her voice was drowned out. Teshigawara Tomokazu, the CEO of the entertainment agency Florite which she belonged to; manager Hanazono Yuko and television producer Goshikinuma Hitoshi coldly watched her from a corner of the room. Makita Kengo, a reporter with the weekly magazine Shukan Seiryu, gleefully took photos of her. The public was fiercely critical of Sara and the media even went after her family. At one point, Sara’s beleaguered mother asked that they forgive her daughter. She poured gasoline and burnt herself to death. The scandal ended Sara’s career in the entertainment industry and made her lose everything including her fiance Teshigawara Junya, the only son of Teshigawara. Now Sara has undergone cosmetic surgery and become a different person. She calls herself Yagami Arisa and works at Florite as a manager. This is the same agency that Sara had once belonged to. A vengeful Arisa vows to push everyone who framed her at the press conference – Teshigawara Tomokazu, Hanazono Yuko and Goshikinuma Hitoshi – into the same hell that she is in. She retaliates by getting the people involved in the plot to hold humiliating press conferences one by one. But shocking facts that no one had imagined are hidden.
