An adaptation of Naoki Prize-winning author Kakuta Mitsuyo's humanistic suspense novel, which was also made into a television series with a different cast and crew. The film powerfully depicts the sorrows of a woman who has an affair with a married man and impulsively abducts his young daughter, as well as the later struggles of the grown girl as she tries to deal with her troubled upbringing. Kiwako (Nagasaku Hiromi) is arrested on abduction charges after four years trying to raise the child Erina (Inoue Mao) on the run, and Erina is returned to her true parents. But as an adult she too finds herself in a relationship with a married man.
