Synopsis / Plot
Noriko is a married woman who commutes once a week between Tokyo, where she runs her family’s jewellery store, and her home at the coast. Her husband has been ill for some time already and has to remain in bed to convalesce. He was a soldier during the war; over the course of their seven-year marriage, they’ve only really lived together for a short time. On the journey between Tokyo and Ajiro, Noriko meets a young doctor, who takes over her husband’s treatment. The encounter with this untroubled, vibrant man helps her regain the joie de vivre lost through years of selflessly doing what had to be done.
