A young Japanese woman comes to Peru to marry a man she has never seen in this somber drama highlighted by cultural differences. Her husband is a first-generation Japanese and both are bound to the time-honored tradition of arranged marriages. Bringing her child from a previous marriage, she finds her new husband living with Andes Mountain Indians and working for an archaeological expedition. The man and her boy take to each other, and the woman begins to study and understand the lives of the Indians. When her husband is killed mining for Incan treasure, she uses the money sent by the state to stay and help the villagers whom she has come to love.
