Two women who look alike switch places to lead the kind of life each has always wanted. Satsuki Kurasawa works as a cleaning lady at a nightclub and also prostitutes herself to the patrons to make extra money. When she is accused of killing one of her johns, a woman named Mako Watsuji, who could be her twin, appears and offers to switch places with her and give her an alibi. After she helps clear the charges against Satsuki, Mako asks if she can continue to live Satsuki’s life and pursue a career as a nightclub dancer. Satsuki, meanwhile, assumes Mako’s life as the heiress of a business conglomerate and begins to devise a plan to take over the family fortune. When Satsuki discovers that Mako had a twin sister who passed away years ago, she begins to wonder if the change of fortune in her life could all be a lucky coincidence or if there is more to their uncanny resemblance.

I really loved this show. It was short, full of drama and had some stellar actors. Loved their mother (she really shined in the last two episodes), the girl who played the twins and both young and old cops. The family weren't half bad either!

I didn't like it the young cop didn't get with or hint at a relationship with Mako! I know that wasn't the point of the story but you could feel the sexual tension.

Why didn't the girls return to the family together? Why did they have to return to their lives? That's messed up!

And tie it up please: What happened to their mother? Who inherited?
