Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this Japanese romance, the trouble begins after a fellow is involved in a fatal car accident. Though he was deemed blameless in the crash, his company still transfers him from Tokyo to a remote branch in a small town. Just before he leaves, the fellow, who is now overcome with guilt, offers the dead man's widow a large sum of money. She refuses it at first, but then listens to her persistent in-laws and takes the cash. She then decides to return to her hometown to recover. Naturally it is the town where the young man has been assigned. The two frequently meet in the street. He tries to be friends, but she continually rebuffs him. Eventually, the discouraged company man asks to be transferred to Pakistan, and as they meet for the last time before he leaves he discloses his love for her. They do not see each other again, until, much to his surprise, on the very day of his departure the widow appears and tells him that she has fallen in love with him and claims she wants to be with him. En route to the airport, however, they see a traffic accident and realize that they can never be together.
