Tadafumi married his wife at 27 years old and supported her as a regular company employee. Three years into their marriage, however, he took up a second job as a driver for Club Eve to make up for his wife's lack of income. He began coming home late with more frequency, causing Kumiko to become worried about him and their tight finances.
During his late-night drives, Tadafumi had fallen in love with Kaori, a hostess, and knowing that his wife would never agree to a divorce, the pair made plans to have her killed. When Kumiko began looking into his activities, he was unknowingly photographed leaving the hostess club with two women.
