Takayama hides the fact that he's gay from his co-workers, but finds it difficult to avert his eyes whenever he's around Ishikawa. The kind of no-nonsense businessman his colleagues both admire and fear, Ishikawa has quickly become his pharmaceutical sales company's top dog... and caught the attention of every woman in the building. When a coincidental meeting outside of work "outs" Takayama to Ishikawa, complications arise. Even though Ishikawa is straight, he can't resist the lure of blackmail and forced sex where Takayama is concerned. In an office affair such as this, can a purely physical relationship ever be enough? Or will Ishikawa's curious experimentations cause him to reexamine how he feels about love in general – and Takayama in particular?
