[ Story ]

Yoko (Enomoto Kanako) is taking care of her friend Abe's (Koike Eiko) apartment while she is studying in China. One day, Suzu (Fujita Yoko) leaves her fiancé, Furuta (Nishijima Hidetoshi), who also happens to be Yoko's ex-boyfriend, and moves in with her. The two women have known each other from a very young age, but don't get on well for one particular reason: they always end up falling in love with the same man and Suzu is the one who gets the guy. Just as they begin to warm to each other, Suzu becomes close with Mitaka (Oshinari Shugo), who happens to be the current object of Yoko's affections. Fed up with being pipped at the post yet again, Yoko falsely claims that she and Furuta have been seeing each other. Suzu moves out after things inevitably come to a head, but she eventually returns and the two settle their differences.
Director Iguchi Nami remakes her own award-winning independent film to create this subtly perceptive portrait of jealousy and friendship.
