A man and a woman drive through the night in a snowstorm. The road trip has no certain destination, just like their relationship. With an enviable husband and an adorable daughter, Toko seems to have it all. For the first time in 10 years, she re-encounters Kurata, a man who she once loved. Little by little, imperceptibly, Kurata unravels the tangled feelings bottled up inside Toko... But Kurata has a secret. As the past and the present collide, Toko makes a decision that nobody could have ever imagined—"Shape of Red" paints the journey of a woman who, upon reuniting with her long-lost lover, begins to re-discover her own individual standards of what happiness is. A man and a woman drive through the night in a snowstorm and the path she travels—beautiful and fleeting—morphs to align with her life journey. The story is based on "Red", written by Rio Shimamoto ("Narratage") who is heralded by women of all ages for her sensational depictions of intimacy and internal conflict braved by the modern woman. This work will embolden you to find your own "Red"—that is—that which women truly desire.
