Yori and Iku were twins. they used to be very close since childhood but lately, Yori had been growing colder towards Iku. Iku was confused towards the drastic change in Yori's attitude towards her. Yori was secretly in love with Iku, causing him sleepless nights as they shared the same bunk bed in a room. one day, Iku started to talk about accepting a guy's confession and being his girlfriend. Yori lost his resolve to stay quiet and confessed his feelings towards Iku. finally understood the reason behind Yori's changed in attitude, Iku accepted Yori and they began a forbidden and painful romance together.
despite the incest side of the plot, the film was very entertaining. while Yori was obviously a better actor than Iku, it was surprisingly heartbreaking watching them cried for their relationship. at some point when their mother suspected the changes with the twins, i hoped for some dramatic occurrence. however it was disappointing to find her choosing the subtle way by encouraging the twins to bring home their partner from school. it was somewhat frustrating to find Yori actually fell into a trap set by another girl who knew their secret and wanted him for herself. while it was understandably difficult to have an ending for a romance as such, we were left with our own imagination at the very end.
