[ Story ]

Masako Yano (Keiko Maki), a woman reporter for the weekly magazine " Modern Women," loses her memory as she falls victim to a group of rapists while in pursuit of her last scoop just prior to her marriage with Takashi Togawa (Tatsuya Hamaguchi).
Masako's brother Kenichiro (Hajime Mitamura), a newspaper reporter, wants to retrieve her memory by giving another dreadful experience of rape, which according to doctors, is the only remedy left.
Kenichiro and Takashi, finally learning that she was trying to cover the activities of a Japanese organization aiding deserters from U.S. forces through the contact with a black American GI, give her over to a similar soldier at a dilapidated house near Johnson Air Base.
The last try proves successful and Masako, calling her lover's name, regains her memory and throws herself into his arms.
