Namiko, the beautiful wife of Seizo Kawashiro, yearns for her husband's companionship and his love, but during the last six months, has seen less and less of him.
Seizo loves his wife, but his mind is taken up with business. Someone is trying to buy up the majority of the stock and take over his company and he must match his wits against the buyer and forestall him.
Ishizuka, the competitor, is the young and handsome owner of the 2.3 Night Club. A self-made man, hard as steel, he lets nothing stand in his way. When Namiko's friend, a woman doctor, takes her to the 2.3 Club, Ishizuka, who has been mingling with the guests, sees Namiko and, hearing that she is Seizo's wife, approaches her with only business in his mind.
He is a past master in handling women, and although Namiko is on her guard, she feels herself falling under his spell. It is the last straw when she calls at an apartment house she has been told of over the phone, and finds her husband in bed with a strange girl.
Seizo explains he used the girl to spy on Ishizuka. He grovels before Namiko and begs her to stop Ishizuka, by fair means or foul, from taking over the company. So, mindful of Ishizuka's whispered words she decides to do her husband a last favour before she leaves him.
Faced with the choice of Namiko's love, or the realization of his lifetime dream, Ishizuka, who has never let himself love any woman before, knows that Namiko is the first and only one and decides to sell his hard-earned stock. They vow to start a new life together, but…
