Izumi is married to a famous novelist, but their life seems to be mere repetition without romance. One day she decides to follow her desires and agrees to pose nude and to mimic sex on camera. Shortly afterward, she meets a mentor and starts selling her body to strangers, all the while remaining the perfect housewife. When a murdered corpse is found in the "love hotel" neighborhood, the police try to understand what happened.
Between social satire and a baroque tale of initiation, Guilty of Romance is an iconoclastic work, lyrical and corrosive, a feminist thriller, gory and erotic!
