Director Hoichi Higashi once again develops an intelligent female lead -- Kazumi (Reiko Ohara) -- whose sensitivity does not undermine her strength when she handles her second husband's emotional conflicts with the wisdom of an adult. Kazumi's younger and more inexperienced husband Hideo (Kaoru Kobayashi) is continually suspicious of her fidelity, for no good reason at all. In one scene, Hideo locks himself in a room while in a fit of pique and Kazumi simply breaks down the door. When Kazumi gets pregnant and then suffers an accident, one might think that a tearful reconciliation between husband and wife would carry the day -- but as director Higashi intimates, it may not be so at all.
