[ Story ]
At the turn of the century, Kyushu in Southern Japan, has begun to enjoy a wave of prosperity due to the trade with China.
All sorts of people are attracted to Kyushu including Tamai Kingoro, fresh from the country who joins the Hamao group of longshoremen, and gradually makes a place for himself. One day, he is called a coward by Oman, a woman laborer, for refusing to fight.
Strange are the ways of women, for when Kingoro tells Oman he is leaving for Wakamatsu, she decides to share his life, for better or for worse.
Joining the Nagata group, Kingoro works to better the longshoremen's living standards. When Nagata retires, he takes over and forms the Longshoremen's Union at the risk of his life.
