Infidelity threatens to break up a marriage in this evocative feature from legendary Japanese director Mikio Naruse. Tsuma concerns the struggles of a woman who finds out that her husband is cheating on her; to avoid the stigma of a broken marriage, she decides she'll do whatever it takes to keep him with her. Tsumawas adapted from a story by Fumiko Hayashi, who wrote about women's cultural struggles in 1950s Japan and whose writings formed the basis for five other Naruse films.
