[ Story ]

Keiichi (Tetsuya Watari), a popular young illustrator, seems to have everything. Actually, however, he longs to leave the noise and crush of the city and go where there is space, fresh air, sunlight.
Then one day he sees a photo exhibition of Australia and decides to go there. So he takes a plane and finds there everything that he missed in the city. He also finds a strange Japanese woman, Saeko (Chieko Matsubara), toward whom he is much attracted.
She, however is engaged to an Australian engineer and no longer free. He leaves, wanders about the country, sketching, but is unable to forget the mysterious and beautiful Saeko.
They meet again in Fiji. By now he knows that she is the only woman for him and tells her so. And, though she does not admit it, she too is attracted toward him. Torn between the two men, the young woman, feeling she has no other recourse, crashes her car head on to a truck.
Kenneth (Masumi Okada) tells Keiichi that he was, indeed, the only man who could have made Saeko happy. Somewhat consoled, the young illustrator leaves Australia, now full of bitter-sweet memories, to return to Tokyo.
