[ Story ]

Master filmmaker Yamada Yoji adapts Nakajima Kyoko's eponymous novel that won the 143rd Naoki Prize. Set against the backdrop of the "Showa Modern" period (1926 to 1945), it presents a full and mysterious account of a scandalous romance. Kuroki Haru's performance was recognized with the award of a Silver Bear for Best Actress at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival.
In 1936 in the suburbs of Tokyo, Taki (Kuroki), a maid working for the Hirai family, deeply admires Tokiko (Matsu Takako), the beautiful lady of the house. As war approaches, Tokiko's relationship with a man named Itakura (Yoshioka Hidetaka) comes under suspicion. After much agonizing, Taki makes a fateful decision.
