Renowned as the king of pink (softcore) films, acclaimed filmmaker Takahisa Zeze makes his first non-pink flick with this psychological thriller about lust and obsession. The film focuses on Fumiko (Akira Yoshino), the married bookkeeper for a beauty salon whose having an affair with hairstylist Sakai (Yota Kawase). Another worker at the salon is the shapely Mayumi (Shoko Kudo), who is the mistress of the shop's owner. When she announces that she is planning to quit in order to start a salon of her own, she and the owner celebrate with a night of hot and sweaty sex. The following day, Fumiko reads Mayumi's smug, satiated expression as meaning that she is sleeping with Sakai. Furious, she invites her rival over while her husband and kids are away and kills her. After chopping her up into bits, she deposits the remains in dumpsters about the neighborhood. Soon afterwards, Sakai delivers some unwelcome news -- not only does he not want to continue their sordid liaison, but he swears that he never slept with Mayumi. Furthering complications, Mayumi's taxi driver husband, Yukio (Taro Suwa), shows up at the salon to give the owner a thrashing. Fumiko ends up nursing his wounds and pride. Just as the police discover bags of Mayumi about town, Fumiko offers to take Yukio up to the snowy north to find his spouse, plotting his demise the whole time.
