[ Story ]
Wataru Hirayama, sympathizes with both his old friend Shukichi Mikami, a former naval officer, and his daughter Fumiko who because of her father's stubbornness has run away from home and is living with her lover, a pianist, and works at a bar.
But when a stranger, Masahiko Taniguchi, asks for Hirayama's consent to marry his daughter Setsuko, he is less understanding.
Hirayama's wife Kyoko and their younger daughter Hisako support Setsuko, as do Yukiko, the daughter of the proprietress of a Kato inn.
But Yukiko, too, has her own problems, for her mother, Hatsu, is constantly lining up prospective bridegrooms, none of whom find favor with her.
As Taniguchi is about to be transferred to Hiroshima, preparations are made for the wedding which Hirayama indignantly declares that he will not attend.
Later, he attends a reunion with old friends who give their opinion that a parent must strive to make his children happy.
Hirayama then visits Kyoto, and what he hears from Hatsu and Fumiko finally leads him to sympathize with his daughter.
