It is set in postwar Osaka and it is about a woman who has moved from Tokyo (her father is a well-known professor) to settle down with her husband. Her salaryman husband ignores her, and she is slowly worn down by domestic drudgery. Matters come to a head when her pretty niece comes to stay and the husband begins to flirt with her.
