AKA Fushidara Na Onna Mahiru Ni Nurweru AKA Haitoko No Mori AKA Forest of Virtue

Hayato comes back to his home village after father breaks his legs and cannot walk anymore. He brings his wife Ami along with him, who had a miscarriage and has been dysfunctional and depressed ever since. Hayato hangs with his old friends and enjoys the life of the village, but Ami is a city girl and is growing lonelier. She finds comfort in the arms of Hayato’s father. It’s not long before everybody in the small village is aware of their relationship – except Hayato.

A drama about betrayal and the illogical nature of love and happiness.

Fantastic chemistry between the two leads and senstive story telling makes an extreme and bleak situation quite tender, human and real.

“it is great to see a filmmaker able to focus on the core selling point of the genre – the erotic scenes.” –
