Synopsis
Rika, an ordinary housewife works as a contract employee for a bank. Her clients praise her for her considerate approach to work. She appears to want for nothing, but feels emptiness inside due to her husband's indifference in her. One day, she meets a university student Kota and falls into an adulterous relationship with him. The more she spends with him, the more she is tempted to dip into her clients' money. As she splurges on expensive goods and consecutive nights in luxury hotel suites, her attitudes to money and her daily life become distorted, and graduates to full-blown embezzlement.
