Iwashita is the daughter of a dry goods merchant in the town of Kyoto. Unbeknownst to her, she is a twin who was abandoned as an infant, along with her sister, because of an old superstition about the bad luck that twins bring. To protect her from the humiliation this knowledge would

bring, Iwashita's parents tell her that they kidnaped her. She begins to suspect that they are not telling the truth, and her suspicions are confirmed when she meets an orphaned villager who is her double (Iwashita in a dual role). Both women are engaged in love affairs. Iwashita (the merchant's

daughter) is being courted by an educated gentleman, but she begins to think he may be more interested in her sister than in her. Nominated by the Academy for Best Foreign Film, but lost to 8 1/2.
