This is a love story / psycho thriller starring Motoki Masahiro, Mizuno Maki, Kanda Uno. The story starts with a serial killer, whose victims are lone women and acts are perpetrated in Mizuno Maki's neighbourhood (it is suggested that Motoki is this serial killer). Motoki is a police officer with 2 faces: he has an obsession for housewife Maki and is very gentle with her, and on the other side he rapes & tortures one of her friend, Kanda Uno. His ultimate goal seems to make Maki fall in love with him: so he uses her friend Uno to affect her relationship with her husband & he gradually introduces himself into her life. Another person is also obsessed with Maki (she is a sort of public personality as she runs a cooking club with other housewives and appears in magazines), harrassing her all the time on the phone, spying on her, etc...: this person is close to her as he knows things from her past (her son drowned in an accident). Motoki also had an ordeal in his past: his mother was killed in a fire, by her lover.

Somehow the atmosphere reminds us of another drama: Nemureru Mori (Sleeping Forest) with Kimura Takuya & Nakayama Miho, but it's scarier as the policeman is really "screwed-up". Check this one out because of Motoki Masahiro's dual role, and it was worth it, even though the ending is little bit confusing.
