Rugged Japanese mountains provide the setting for this grim drama that begins as three young men embark upon a climb. Tragedy follows when one of the fellows gets confused in the fog and walks off a cliff. A year passes and the cousin of the deceased goes up the mountain accompanied by one of the original party members. Eventually, the suspicious cousin demands that the fellow reveal the truth about his cousin's "accidental" death. The man freely confesses to the murder and the cousin then gets his revenge.
