[ Story ]

Since Tome can remember men have always cast dark shadows over her life. She had been born only two months after her parents' marriage, and rumor says that she is an illegitimate child.
Tome is married at 23, bears a child, but leaves home after finding that her husband has fathered a child by her maid. During the difficult years following the end of the Pacific War, Tome works as a maid at an American Army Base. She then operates a call-girl racket until the law catches up with her.
After her release from prison she finds that her own daughter has taken up with her patron, but after her long experience with men, nothing can break her spirit.
