Sakuragi Shun is a salesman who works for a Sunbath Home Housing, a house manufacturing company. He enjoys a happy life at home with his wife and daughter. Due to a sudden personnel change, he was assigned to transfer to Kagoshima, a city he was familiar with from his junior high school days. There, for the first time in 17 years, he is reunited with his first love Takeda Hana. She works as a junior high school teacher, while her husband who works as first mate, spends most of the year at sea, so she usually lives alone. While reminiscing the bittersweet memories of their high school days together, a hidden Pandora's box begins to open... Furthermore, sparks also fly with Katoyama Naoya, Shun's friend and former love rival from their junior high school days, who now works for another company in the same industry. Although Shun has a beloved wife, the flames of jealousy quietly flare up. Meanwhile, Sakuragi Shun's wife is trying to suppress her anxiety. Based on their phone calls and emails, she becomes suspicious that her husband is cheating on her, and in order to eliminate her fears, she takes a trip to visit him in Kagoshima. As the slight lies begin to pile up, the truth becomes complicated, and when the lies are exposed, how will the relationship between the four of them change?

Surprisingly good

The writing is excellent, there is a lot of self-irony that is absolutely unexpcted in japanese drama.
The synopsis is a bit misleading. The driving theme is jealousy, but there are several levels of the stories
(yes there are several stories!). I found the acting excellent and the actors were very carefully and well chosen.
The whole is accompanied by the appropriate music. The short time of each episode contributes to an alert
rhythm; all unnecessary fillings were deleted. I was almost deceived by the final - a typical japanese one
- but the very last minutes are great: it is not 100% the expected japanese final!

Even if it is not the big revolution, this drama is much better than its actual renomee.
It is 100% worth its watching time!
