    • Synopsis
    • In a Tokyo suburb, a party is winding down at an ostentatious mansion surrounded by greenery. Those who remain begin to gather on a terrace.
      Haruko, a woman with pale white skin, and her graphic designer husband.
      The party’s hosts: a lascivious company director, and his cleavage-flaunting wife.
      A gaunt middle-aged man barely recovered from a serious illness, and an awkward company employee.
      The hosts’ likable son, who comes home late.
      All of the men are captivated by Haruko’s pale white arms, enflaming the jealousy of the company director’s wife. Literary anecdotes abound, as does petty bickering.
      The masks they have carefully crafted are suddenly torn away, exposing their tainted humanity. Desire, jealousy, and secrets are laid bare over 90 minutes on the terrace, culminating in a shocking and not exactly happy end.
