[ Story ]
In Rome, Chino, an unsuccessful singer, has an affair with Takagi, a struggling painter. When Takagi returns to Japan after winning the attention of Akizuki, an art connoisseur, an exhibition of his paintings proves highly successful.
Visitors to the exhibition include Chino, who has since married, and Yoshiko Nomura, a beautiful young woman. However, although he is attracted by Yoshiko, Takagi slips into his former relations with Chino.
Takagi learns from Chino that Yoshiko is a deaf mute. In the meantime Yoshiko falls ill in Rome where she is visiting welfare institutions.
A scandal is created when Chino commits suicide and, urged by Akizuki, Takagi leaves for Rome, where he spends one happy day with Yoshiko before she returns to Japan. They realize that they love each other but are doomed to part, and Takagi stays alone in Rome.
