But she has one secret: she is a creation of countless full-body plastic surgeries, and her whole body, except for her bones, eyeballs, mails, hair, ears and private parts, are all surgically made-up.
s her doctor and her clinic get investigated for a possible infraction of pharmaceutical law, one detective starts to approach Lilico to find out who she really is. At the same time, her body begins to collapse as the surgeries go a little too far...
Exposed to adoration, envy, suspicion, and certain death, Lilico braves Tokyo’s savage showbiz world all by her own...
