Although he is a respected doctor and seems to have a happy family life with Sachiko and their two children (Yoshimura Kaito, Yamada Kanami), he has been seeing someone behind his wife’s back since three years ago. Furthermore, this person he has been having clandestine meetings with is a young man Umezawa Tomohisa (Asaka Kodai), a talented graduate student studying ceramic art at the art university in Kanazawa. One day, a detective investigating the murder of a woman visits Teiichiro. The man called Sugiyama Kozo (Horibe Keisuke) who was arrested on suspicion of murder, asserts that he has an alibi. He had met Teiichiro at the time it took place. In fact, Teiichiro was enjoying a tryst with Tomohisa on that day. He and Sugiyama happened to meet but he pretended not to recognise him. Fearing that his relationship with Tomohisa will be exposed, and driven to mental despair about losing both his family and job, Teiichiro ends up giving a false statement that he never met Sugiyama that day. Because of that, his peaceful life is shattered and he has to pay a terrible price that he had never anticipated for his affair.
