Upwardly mobile office worker Kawarazaki disrupts his marriage when he renews his acquaintance with onetime lover Kobayashi. Kawarazaki had deemed Kobayashi, now fallen on hard times after an abortion of Kawarazaki's unborn child, an unsuitable wife. A mutual woman friend, Natsumi, tells

him of his former sweetheart's troubles, and following his self-serving wedding, his compassionate nature compels him to see her again. Their passion is rekindled, but they are photographed making love by an ally of the sinister go-between, Natsumi. Attempting to save her beloved's career, the

once-abandoned Kobayashi tries to recover the blackmail photographs but dies in an accidental fall from a window. An interesting contemporary Asian account of the dilemma expressed in Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy.
