Yoko Noguchi is already an established plastic surgeon of some repute, and the owner of her own clinic, whilst still in her twenties. The combination of her skill and her beautiful face are the keys to her success. One late night she is visited by a mysterious woman called Yoshie, who wants to be operated on in private and will pay a huge fee to achieve her desire. She wants to look beautiful. After a successful course of surgery, Yoshie, clearly a mentally unbalanced woman, returns with more money demanding further operations. Yoko is gradually driven to the edge by the incessant demands of Yoshie in her search for physical perfection. Life becomes an intense struggle to keep her career and, soon, her life.
