This melodrama finds a Japanese student feeling the separation of economic classes in society. A poor student with liberal leanings has an affair with a farm girl. His friend talks him out of seeing the girl, explaining the woman can only hold him back. After he dumps her, she quits school to have an abortion and eventually finds a job in a nursing home after talking up with a prostitute. The boy gets a successful job and marries the boss' daughter, but a chance encounter with his old girlfriend fans the flames of love. The two cannot fight the passion and their love-making is photographed by a friend of the girl's. She tries to use the photographs to destroy his marriage as she seeks revenge against the man who had abandoned her earlier.
