[ Story ]

Matsugae Kiyoaki (Tsumabuki Satoshi) was brought up by the aristocratic Ayakura family. Kiyoaki is in love with Count Ayakura's daughter, Satoko (Takeuchi Yuko), but doesn't know how to express his love to her. Satoko accepts a proposal of arranged marriage from the imperial family which will benefit the Ayakuras, too. Satoko writes to Kiyoaki to confirm his feeling for her, but his replies never arrive and she ends up accepting the engagement. Only after the official announcement of the marriage does Kiyoaki realize how much he loves Satoko. They begin to meet in secret, in full knowledge that their affair is doomed. Then, Satoko realizes to her horror that she is pregnant. Her parents try to force her to have an abortion, but Satoko leaves her family and doesn't even tell Kiyoaki about the child. Kiyoaki contracts tuberculosis and although he tries in vain to meet Satoko, he succumbs to the disease and dies.
This movie is based on the first book of Mishima Yukio's last great quartet of novels, Hojo no Umi (The Sea of Fertility).
