[ Story ]

Shinkichi Yuki, a well-known novelist, returns to Kyoto and meets two sisters he used to know who run a Japanese-style restaurant. Staying at the home of Shima, formerly a famous geisha, he calls on the two and finds that Kiyoko, an unhappy marriage behind her, is carrying on the business, and that Hisako is engaged to Akio but does not seem too happy about it.
Nor is Kiyoko happy. She has no man in her life and, at one point, having drunk too much, even offers herself to the disinterested novelist who, suggests that she go home and sober up. Then Akio breaks his engagement and, turning his attentions to the lonely elder sister, seduces her. She runs away with him, convinced that her beloved sister, Hisako, would never understand what happened and, even if she did, would not forgive her.
Years later the novelist meets the older Kiyoko working as a hostess in a Tokyo bar. Both he and Shima persuade her to go back to Kyoto and make up with her sister. Finally the two are reunited, the love which bound them together is renewed, and once again they return to the restaurant business.
