As a way to withdraw from his monotonous life, Reiji finds solace in watching performances by “Acrylic”, an idol group, and its most beautiful member, Aoe Nagi. But when he meets the famous idol behind a convenience store in his gloomy town, he doesn’t anticipate that he will soon find himself embroiled in a series of scandalous events that seem to be a repercussion from times long past. Deprived of his innocence, Reiji struggles to traverse the abyss of sin into which he has been dragged, as an intricate web of lies, obsessions, and betrayals threaten to tear him apart.
