Natsuko (Setsuko Karasumaru) is a woman of 20 who feels entrapped in her long-running relationship with another man - she wants out of a "nowhere" life and into something better. To that end, she hooks up with a photographer and poses for him in the nude - if only to break away from her restricted existence for awhile. Soon the photographer leads her to a relationship with an open-minded man who helps her along the path of individual choice and freedom. Her next relationship is with a well-known actor who is able to introduce her to an acting job - an intimation that perhaps Natsuko's life will change after all. Given enough time and men, could she eventually run for Prime Minister?
