Unfortunately, she is caught in the act by a rich man's wife Takigawa Rikako (Kichise Michiko) who is having an affair with an artist Kato Osamu (Kitamura Kazuki) behind her husband's back. Due to her interaction with Rikako, Sawa later develops a forbidden affair with senior high school teacher Kitano Yuichiro played by Saito Takumi. Co-stars also include Ito Ayumi, Kinami Haruka, Kinoshita Houka, Suzuki Kosuke and Takahata Atsuko.
