[ Story ]

Kushimori Shuichi (Ninomiya Kazunari) is a seventeen-year-old boy living with his mother and sister. Their lives are turned upside down after the return of Shuichi's mother's ex-husband, Sone. They had been married ten years earlier, but got divorced very soon after. Shuichi starts having murderous desires toward Sone, who stays at their house and behaves outrageously. Other than the slight suspicions of his girlfriend, Fukuhara Noriko (Matsuura Aya), Shuichi has executed the perfect murder plan. However, Shuichi starts being threatened by a witness to the murder, his classmate Ishioka. Shuichi suggests to Ishioka that they carry out a mock robbery at the convenience store where he works. At the crime scene, Shuichi switches a fake knife for a real one and kills Ishioka, successfully making it look like an accident. Soon after, the evidence of Shuichi's murder of Sone is found in Ishioka's room. Shuichi asks the police for a day's grace to say goodbye to friends and to meet Noriko. On the way back from seeing her, he leaps in front of a truck and kills himself.
