[ Story ]

The lives of a couple consisting of a Japanese woman and a Chinese man are upturned by war in this film based on author Shirafuji Shigeru's novel. At the helm is Nomura Yoshitaro who directed Castle of Sand and Village of the Eight Tombs.
During the war, Sachiko (Kishi Keiko) marries a Chinese medical student, Gan Shosho (Sada Keiji), who is studying in Japan. When they go to Nanjing as a couple, Shosho works with Nanjing's new provisional government in striving for peace, but after the war is targeted by the Chongqing government. Shosho asks Sachiko to raise their daughter, and swallowing tears makes the choice to divorce.
