Comments: Too Long. No Heft. It's LifeTime Channel stuff. Aya Ueto is both fetching and off. I would have skipped even fast forwarding through this if I had noticed beforehand that it was from the guy who made Amalfi: Rewards of the Goddess. This knowledge moved the film from unenjoyable to offensive.

Summary: When a Japanese housewife has an affair while her husband is hard at work providing for the family the phrase goes 'heijitsu hirugao tsuma.' When a Japanese woman sleeps with a married teacher she is shunned and shamed and has to change her name and residence. yet, that is not their end. There is more to come.
