Tamaki and Kaori broke up three years ago, but continue to share an apartment with strict boundaries, marked by colored tape. When they both find new love interests, they start to re-examine their peculiar relationship. Izumi MATSUNO’s finely nuanced drama is characterized by its atmospheric density and a poetic visual approach.
