[ Story ]
Yoko Hamaguchi (Mari Atsumi) had been the inmate of a Girls' Home, sent there when she had taken the blame for her younger sister, a kleptomaniac. She has been placed in the care of Minister Wada (Minoru Chiaki), a probation officer, and his wife (Michiko Otsuka). The minister finds Yoko to be a strange girl, lacking any sense of right or wrong.
When he teaches her that the history of Christianity is one of love and of making others happy and serving them, Yoko interprets his words in her own way. When lgawa (Kenzo Kaneko) and Shibazaki (Osamu Sakai) approach her, she gladly gives herself to them by turns, for isn't it Christian Love to make others happy?
Minister Wada is scandalized when he finds Yoko and Shibazaki making love in church, of all places! He finds her an apartment to keep her out of the reach of boys.
The minister is not an irresponsible youth. He must make amends to his church and to Yoko. To do these things, he resigns from his church, sends his wife home, and intends to marry Yoko when he becomes free. In the meantime, he waits hand and foot on Yoko, who has become a singer in a cabaret.
Yoko has no intention of marrying the minister whom she considers more like a father. Moreover, she has fallen in love with a youth for the first time in her life and dreams of marrying him. Suddenly, the two, who had seemed so close to each other, find an unbreakable chasm between them.
