La famille Tashiro mène une vie paisible à Kamakura. En déplacement à Tokyo, Isao, le chef de famille, rencontre fortuitement son voisin, Sugimoto. Celui-ci, à la recherche de son épouse disparue, n'est pas parvenu à la retrouver. Les deux hommes décident alors de boire un verre ensemble puis de rentrer chez eux. Or, le même soir, Yumiko, une amie de Sayuri, la femme de Sugimoto, annonce que cette dernière a été assassinée chez elle. À l'enterrement, Yumiko se rappelle avoir vu Isao Tashiro sortir de l'appartement de Sayuri. Rongé par le remords et la culpabilité, Isao confie à son épouse qu'il est le meurtrier de Sayuri. Celle-ci adorait se sentir étranglée durant l'acte d'amour, et le jeu s'était, cette fois-là, mal terminé. Malgré les conseils de son épouse, puis de Sugimoto, également informé de l'accident, Isao, parfaitement incapable de surmonter ses sentiments de culpabilité, menace de se dénoncer à la police. Masako, voulant sauver à n'importe quel prix la réputation de la famille et l'avenir de ses deux enfants, empoisonne alors son mari.
