One day Iwago comes back with a young girl he's bought from a man who wanted to sell her in China. They adopt her and Kiwa raises her, as a respectable girl, with her two sons. But Iwago wants to manage the career of a singer who becomes his mistress and the situation becomes very tense for the couple.
