Kyoichi is an indecisive advertising agency employee who has been cheating on his wife for a while. One day his wife hires a private investigator to find evidence. And coincidentally, that investigator is Wataru, Kyoichi’s junior from university. Wataru says he will not reveal the truth on one condition – that he’ll have a sexual relationship with him. At first Kyoichi is taken aback and tries to push Wataru away, but slowly it becomes difficult to reject this man who’s had feelings for Kyoichi for the past seven years.
A story of unrequited love, and the ambiguities of sexuality, director Isao Yukisada presents one of the most romantic and heartrending films of the year. Starring Ryo Narita as Wataru and Tadayoshi Okura as Kyoichi in the most intimate performances of their careers.
