This drama is taken from the best-selling novel by Sojiro Tamura. Prostitutes in post-World War II occupied Japan peddle their flesh and save one-third of their money for a proposed dancehall to be named Paradise. The hookers live in a burned out house with an unexploded bomb, but they accept the precarious situation with typical resolve. Their lives are a symbolic metaphor between the old Japan and the nation that must emerge from the ashes of war.
