Ishiwatari An has lived in comfort with her husband Shingo who works for a travel agency and their son Ken. But her life drastically changed one day when Shingo disappeared all of a sudden. She raises Ken as a single mother. He qualifies for the well-known Asakura Gakuen, a combined junior high and high school, and she attends a parent orientation session. Hayashi Yuko and Kanbara Mari who have sent their sons to Asakura Gakuen are also in the same classroom as An. “Surprisingly, the mothers are all having affairs,” An is shocked when she hears this from Mari whom she is friends with. These three beautiful mothers with different family situations seem to lead happy lives. But they have troubles and emotional scars that they cannot tell anyone. An’s husband disappeared with someone’s wife 11 years ago. She was told about this by the woman’s husband, Saiki Takumi. Yuko is a career woman. She has been supporting her husband Shigeo who is a struggling writer and their son Daisuke who has been a social recluse, and feels more comfortable when she is at work than with her family. Mari’s husband Shigeki heads a law firm and she leads a glamorous life. Although she realises that he has been cheating on her, she is not able to confront him.
