    • 20-year-old Kaori works part-time to support her design studies. Specializing in metalwork, she puts her first ring on her finger. She's proud of its sliced-lemon design. But her pleasure is short-lived as she's behind in tuition payments and close to expulsion. 40-year-old Kaori is a righteous and efficient temp secretary at a prestigious trade company. But after she finishes work, her immoral side takes over. She is a compulsive shoplifter.
      A 20-year-old Kaori and a 40-year-old Kaori... As the two lonely souls wander in search of redemption, their stories cross and weave a mysterious tale with an unexpected outcome.
