During the early days of the war a young student, Makito (Kazuo Funaki), falls in love with Yuko (Mayumi Ozora), the widow of a naval officer. She, however, is living with the memories of her husband and it is her younger sister, Yumiko (Nana Ozaki), who grows fond of the student.
Then, one day, a young naval officer, Tadayuki (Ken Ogata), a friend of her late husband, comes to see the widow and she becomes attracted to him. Though Makito is inspired to study for the navy, he is much upset when he learns that Yuko and Tadayuki are to marry. Shortly afterwards, however, Tadayuki is assigned to the Kamikaze Squadron and takes off, never to return.
After the war Makito returns, and finds Yuko at a temple, and both are happy to be reunited. When she discovers, however, that Tadayuki was sent to a suicide-squad because of his marriage to his former friend's widow, she feels that she can no longer live, thanks Makito for his devotion then takes her own life.
