Tetsuo is a wild youth and unhappy over the indifference shown him by his father and stepmother. When Mariko falls in love with him this arouses the jealousy of Shuichi who challenges Tetsuo to a motor cycle race.
Shuichi is seriously injured but is nursed back to health by Yoko, a woman officer of the Self-Defense Forces. Impressed with Yoko's unselfish devotion Tetsuo realises his faults, and for Yoko's sake enlists in the Self-Defense Forces.
