[ Story ]

Yoko Uno (Keiko Sekine) and Yoshio Okaya (Saburo Shinoda) are schoolmates at high school. Yoshio's father is a detective and Yoko's is president of a construction company. One day Yoshio's brother Takuro (Kenzo Kaneko) stabs his father to death to try to get some information on the radical student movement. Now Yoko's mother forbids her to see Yoshio and then Yoshio's grief stricken mother dies. To make money for his brother's defense costs, Yoshio leaves school and goes to work. Knowing Yoshio is returning home with his parents' ashes, Yoko insists on going with him. But their happy life in the country is only short lived, for Yoshio is arrested on charges of kidnapping and Yoko is taken home.
In the meantime, Takuro receives the death sentence and wishes to die rather than appeal. Does any man or society have the right to deny a man's existence in this world? Yoshio and Yoko ask her parents' permission to marry. But they drive Yoshio away and Yoko is confined to a room. A few days later, their classmate Tamotsu (Kei Wakakura), who has been instructed by Yoko's mother invites Yoko for a drive. Learning that she is trying to use him to see Yoshio, Tamotsu is wild with jealousy. He loses control the instant Yoko jumps out of the car which fall from a cliff, and
is killed.
Yoshio encourages her tenderly in despair.
They visit Shinshu Province, the place of sweet memories and go to the mountains under a heavy snow fall to die in order to find eternal love.
