Kaori Maejima is an interior design planner for a construction firm. At first glance, Kaori is well-established in life, but she's been carrying on an affair with her married boss for seven years. It's a barren love with no hope for the future, but she's become reconciled to it. Then a man appears before her, Haruto Shinonome, a designer transfering from the Hong Kong branch office. When this Shinonome discovers the adulterous affair, Kaori's life begins to change, and she falls into a dangerous trap. A thrilling and emotional adult love story!
