Love as fetishism and obsession is tensely portrayed in this film through complex feelings between two women. Kazuko, a part-timer, gets acquainted with a woman on crutches, wearing a plaster around her leg. Her name is Tamaki, and she strangely attracts Kazuko. “When I wear plaster, funny things happen to me”, says Tamaki. Not knowing of being in danger, Kazuko becomes obsessed with the mysterious woman in plaster.
