Doctor Shizue Natsukawa comes to a small village to tell them about a hospital to treat lepers. There are some lepers about, and the local gossips have nasty things to say. She explains what is known about the disease, how it vectors, and how the hospital wants to help return the sufferers to a normal life. There are roadblocks; some people say the sufferers are taken to the island and killed. One of the sufferers is so ashamed of his leprosy, that he will not even admit he has it, even though everyone knows it.
