When Nora meets her friend Yuka at a bar, their conversation makes clear that Nora had a nasty experience one year ago. Although Yuka tries to support and cheer up Nora,the latter slinks off and goes home. It remains a mystery what is exactly going on, but a man that keeps reappearing in her life seems to be involved.
