Story
30-year-old Tsuji Kazumichi is an employee of a small trading company who has been drifting through daily life to ward off the sense of emptiness that he feels. Although he is friendly, he is actually lukewarm about everything and two-times his colleagues in the workplace. One day, Tsuji encounters a woman called Hayama Ukiyo at a convenience store. Ukiyo is a dangerous woman who leads men down the path of destruction without even realising it. She turns out to be a whole lot of trouble even after Tsuji saves her life when her car stalls at a railway crossing. She lies when cornered, behaves irresponsibly with money and human relationships and carries a driver’s licence with a fake address. Against his better judgement, Tsuji’s relationship with her deepens as if their destinies are entangled … …
