Kihachi wanders through a desolate landscape on the outskirts of Tokyo looking for factory work, accompanied by his two sons. The only income they're able to make is by catching stray dogs, for which the government is paying in an anti-rabies campaign. They are staying at an inn, but their money is running low. The boys become interested in a fancy cap one of the other children has. The younger boy would like to own such a cap, but they need any money they make for food. The next day, they run into a young widow, Otaka who is also looking for work, accompanied by her young daughter. The two boys play with the girl and quickly become friends. They part. The boys catch another stay dog, and the older boy goes off to cash in. When he returns, he has purchased a cap with the money. Kihachi is angry. They need the money for food. When they return to the inn, they find that the widow is also staying there, but she hasn't found work either.
