[ Story ]
Kohei Misugi works in a vegetable market, but his ambition is to be a photographer. He is given his first opportunity to demonstrate his talent by the Sakura Film Company which offers him an assignment to "Cover Tokyo" with a camera. But he is disillusioned when he is told he must work together with Miharu, a good looking girl in the film company's publicity department. Then the fun begins.
Matters become involved when it is discovered that Miharu's brother is actually her cousin and is in love with her, and when Miharu's sister asks Kohei to become her temporary fiancee for the purpose of discouraging a man who has proposed to her.
In the meantime, Kohei produces a number of excellent photographs of life in Tokyo. Among these is a picture of an old flower dealer who turns out to be the father of Setsuko, the girl who accused Kohei of stealing a necktie.
But the real excitement starts when a gangster sees the photograph of the florist and recognizes him as the man who was responsible for sending him to prison six years before, and tracks down Kohei to find out the whereabouts of Setsuko's father.
But the gangster discovers the old florist through Setsuko, who is working in a night club and in whose presence talks about the photograph of her father. But, when the florist is being tortured by the gangster and his henchmen Kohei comes to the rescue, and all is well.
Kohei's photographic assignment has been a great success, and the advertising agency offers him another - this time to go to South Africa. Both Setsuko and Miharu volunteer to go with him. Who will he accept ... ?
