[ Story ]

Though still young, Natsuko gave up the life of a geisha to become the mistress of the president of a shipbuilding company. When he is about to re-marry she insists he either wed or stop seeing her. Returning home, she again meets the man she first loved and for a time thinks of married happiness with him. When confronted by both, however, she decides to choose neither. She has been dependent for too long, she decides, and wishes to live her own life.
