Synopsis
Investigator Kuwamura Midori believes happy days lie ahead after her boyfriend Asano Ryuhei, who is a police detective, proposed marriage to her. One day, a woman called Nozoe Atsuko comes to the investigation agency where Midori works. Atsuko wants them to track Oshimoto Tadao, who has been released from prison after serving a sentence for raping her seven years ago. She has lived in fear of the words “I’ll take revenge” that he uttered at the time of the trial. Midori herself has been a victim of domestic violence and stalking by Kuga Kenjiro, a photographer whom she once dated, and is emotionally traumatised. She decides to accept Atsuko’s request and as she begins investigating, Oshimoto’s obsessive desire for revenge becomes clear. Resenting the fact that he was reported to the police, he has been using all sorts of methods to locate Atsuko and steadily get closer to her. Identifying with Atsuko’s predicament, Midori devotes herself to pursuing Oshimoto. But her boss Okaniwa Tadashi is concerned about her. At the same time, Kuga appears in front of Midori and tails her again. Professing his wholehearted love for her, he ignores the resistance she puts up and starts taking photos of her. He seems to enjoy the “hunt”. This never-ending hell eventually makes Midori vow revenge.
