[ Story ]

Originally a best selling biography, then a top TV serial, Ohanahan now becomes a film, starring Iwashita Shima, remembered from The Scarlet Camellia and Ozu's An Autumn Afternoon. This picture, the first part of the novel, recounts the tomboy childhood of the heroine and her early love for a handsome lieutenant. The Russo-Japanese war is on the horizon and Ohanahan lives happily in a small town in Shikoku, little thinking of the sorrows that life has in store for her. Her first set-back is when the lieutenant rejects the proposed engagement on the grounds that war many occur at any time. But Ohanahan is not satisfied with this and, anyway, the lieutenant has by this time fallen in love with her. So they marry and leave for Tokyo; and for the first time, the girl sees big city life. She is completely happy but then war breaks out and her husband leaves for the front. Though he returns safely, his eventual death turns her life into a tragedy.
