★★★★ “elegant and amusing, with a delicacy of touch and real imaginative warmth” “Ingenious, sparklingly acted and thoroughly entertaining” The Guardian


“wheel of fortune and fantasy is an alternately scathing, erotic, terrifying, and affirming fable of the primordial power of storytelling.” Slant


An unexpected love triangle, a failed seduction trap and an encounter that results from a misunderstanding.

 

Meiko is startled when she realiSes that the man who her best friend starts to have feelings for, is her ex; Sasaki plots to trick his college professor out of revenge, using his class-friend-with-benefits Nao, while Natsuko encounters a woman who seems to be someone from her past, leading the two to confess the feelings they have harboured in their hearts - stories about the complexities of relationships, told through coincidences that happen in the lives of women in love.
