A moving account of the lives of women disgraced in post-WW II Japan for having become prostitutes. The movie follows a group of women hosted by a rehabilitation center after prostitution became ilegal. It focuses on one of them, Kuniko, in her search for a new life, after she is allowed to leave the center. Life in the real world turns out to be harsh for Kuniko: the story is told as crudely as a realistic view of life allows.
