    • A shocking dark-Cinderella story
      As the daughter of legendary actress Sukeyo Fuchi (Rei Dan), Kasane (Kyoko Yoshine) is gifted with her mother’s superior talent of acting. However, her appearance does not resemble that of her mother, and a big scar on her face has made her feel inferior. But her late mother left her a lipstick that is charmed with a mysterious power that can steal the “face” of the one who is kissed.
      On the other hand, Nina Tanzawa (Tao Tsuchiya) is a stage actress with remarkable beauty, but struggles to take center stage because of a reason she dares not to tell anyone. Her desperation to succeed as an actress grows by the day…
      One day Kasane meets Nina through a man named Habuta (Tadanobu Asano) who had been under the help of Sukeyo in the past. “Beauty” and “talent”… The desire to fill their weaknesses has brought the two women together. The two decide to use the power of the lipstick and switch faces in order to fulfill their wishes.
      “Nina Tanzawa” is now in the spotlight as the perfect actress, combining Nina’s beauty and Kasane’s talent. The two women have their desires fulfilled, until they both fall in love with a director named Ugo (You Yokoyama), which puts a crack in their secret partnership. The curtains rise on the love-hate relationship of two desperate actresses.
