The story begins with five women – Baba Kayo, Wakai Futaba, Daimon Yoko, Adachi Akemi and Katsuta Chinatsu – plotting to kidnap Itabashi Goro, the handsome CEO of a large corporation. Their motive is not immediately clear but it is gradually revealed that he murdered his lover. They want to expose the truth and clear the false charges against previous CEO’s daughter Edogawa Shinobu who is still in prison. However, their revenge does not go according to plan and some developments cause occasional panic. The women first met six years ago while serving time for various crimes at a women’s prison – Kayo for the attempted murder of her unfaithful husband; Akemi for possession of illegal drugs; prison leader Chinatsu for hiding money to evade huge tax; Yoko for cheating and embezzling money; and Shinobu for committing murder. A stern prison officer and instructor, Futaba, watched over the five of them. She had hated crime all her life and educated them strictly to straighten them out. However, as she came into contact with them, her cold, shuttered heart gradually opened and she was captivated by the feelings of these hopeless but charming women. On Christmas Eve, Chinatsu who is well-known as a charismatic economic analyst and Goro make guest appearances on a TV programme. There is something cozy about the two of them after meeting each other again for the first time in years. In the middle of the recording, there is a cue card with the words “Your son has been kidnapped” which shocks Goro. In fact, this was set up by Kayo who had come into the studio after keeping tabs on the movements of Goro and his family since morning. She then gets in touch with Yoko and Akemi and heads to an outlet store in the suburbs. They are trying to kidnap Goro’s son but things are thrown into disarray when Yoko brings the wrong child. Looking at the plan they have drawn up, they wonder how to turn things around...

Great first episode with plenty of my beloved Kudo Kankuro humour followed by one or two good episodes with typical Kankuro time jumps. Sadly, and I don't know why, it got repetitive. Acting and chemistry are great and the good ideas are all there but it's not kickstarting as it should.

Couple of my favorites here, Miho Kanno and Hikari Mitsushima. Good drama, but jumps around a lot, lots of flashbacks and after awhile I was saying, "Let's just get on with it!"

Super enjoyable. Mystery and resolution was lame but the character development was superb.
