One day he reunites with Gondo (Yota Kawase) his homeroom teacher from high school. 10 years ago, Gondo had been caught for filming the girl’s locker room and vanished from the public eyes. Meanwhile, Kan’ichi’s friend Shigeo had always been trying to find a copy of Gondo’s peeping film because his classmate in high school was a girl called Tomomi (Juri Ibata) who would later go on to become a famous celebrity. As Shigeo and his crew impeach Gondo, Kan’ichi steals Gondo’s lover Mihari (Erisa Yanagi) who is a hostess. But just when Gondo loses all that he has, he realizes that he is feeling a sense of freedom that he’d never felt before in his life.
