Four young men, Shun, Tomoki, Kazuya, and Eita, have been friend since their childhood and now work together for the construction company run by Kazuya's family. Their lives are mostly carefree in the quiet town of Oiso until Kazuya's uncle, their former teacher, is found dead. Hitherto unseen cracks emerge between the boys and their intimate relationship is threatened as secrets are revealed, not least the uncle has a beautiful young widow nobody knows about and the construction company is subject to a certain criminality. This is just one example of trust betrayed as everyday corruption and crime is brought out into the light in this sleepy town in a film that is a slice-of-life drama with noirish shading.
