Ishida plays the role of Hayashi Chigusa, the wife of Hayashi Satoshi (Mashima Hidekazu) who was planted by Tamaru into a new religious group as a spy. However, Satoshi has gone missing for the past two years so Tamaru tries to support Chigusa who is awaiting her husband's return. Gradually, feelings develop between Tamaru and Chigusa but they have to try to restrain themselves from going over the forbidden line.
Ishida commented that this time, she has to show the emotions of her character with very few actions which is rather difficult. However, when she faces Nishijima who plays Tamaru, the sad emotions will well up naturally so she's very thankful for her co-star's presence. She also praised Nishijima for having a smiling face like a puppy which will be sure to send hearts fluttering especially. As such, the scenes of Chigusa and Tamaru should be a welcome distraction from the intense scenes in the drama.
