Kyoko, a heterosexual girl who behaves as she pleases, and Chinatsu, a lesbian girl taking photographs as if she were keeping a diary, live together in a solitary house. Together they smoke dope and take jobs as bunnies in a hostess club to pay the bills. Kyoko falls in love with Sakamoto, a tropical fish shop manager, who never cares for her. Chinatsu then takes to Kyoko, but Kyoko pretends she does not notice Chinatsu’s attentions. Chinatsu feels lost in her own sexuality. (production notes)
 
 “The subject of this film is something everyone has experienced before. This is a story of two people whose relationship is changing because the feelings of one of them have developed from feelings of dearest friendship to total love.”
