Two librettists arrive and pluck people living in a bare valley, in order to turn them into operetta characters. The two librettists come up with a plot, in which selected young men and women are designated into two opposing groups, both claiming ownership and intending to take possession and restore a house in ruin. Their fierce battle is anticipated to turn into blissful love by the end. While the librettists attempt to shepherd judiciously the youngsters' relationships in the desired direction, the enactment is constantly derailed. Whenever the characters' instincts follow natural impulses, the creators relentlessly correct digressions, reverse undesired developments, sometimes by rewinding time and reenacting events, shaped into their liking. The Ageless Goddess of operetta appears and irons out the scheme by performing a Socialist Realist lullaby from 1947. Finally, all resemblance to the characters' original individuality is converted into clich s of operetta characters. The couples and their adversaries have been fixed into their happy matrimonial lives ever after.

In a country which remains without a name throughout the film, a dictator (known as the "Marshal") is preparing for war. At the same time, an incurable disease is spreading around the country which only assails those over the age of 45. The disease mirrors leprosy. Human tissue decomposes; sufferers have severe pain; an unpleasant body odor accompanies the ravages of the disease. The disease first presents itself with white patches, which feel cold and numb; these continue to spread. For those so struck, one thing is for sure: sooner or later, they will die. Even the best hospitals in the country can do more than give a placebo to those struck with the "white plague". Only after Doctor Galen, a doctor who cares for the poor, discovers a miracle cure do things change. However, he won't reveal how the antidote is made unless a certain condition is met: any country which refuses to make lasting peace will not be given the antidote. Only if all governments agree to that condition will he turn over his information. Initially, his terms are rejected.

Die Krankheit beginnt mit ersten wei en Flecken, die sich kalt und taub anf hlen, und diese Flecken breiten sich weiter aus. F r die Befallenen besteht die Gewissheit: Sie werden fr her oder sp ter sterben. Selbst die beste Klinik im Land kann den Patienten kaum mehr als ein Placebo gegen die sogenannte wei e Krankheit verabreichen. Die Lage ndert sich erst, als der Armenarzt Doktor Gal n ein Wundermittel entdeckt. Wie es hergestellt wird, will er jedoch erst verraten, wenn eine bestimmte Bedingung erf llt ist. Doktor Gal n w nscht sich das Ende aller Kriege. Er will sein Medikament keinem Staat geben, der nicht dauerhaften Frieden schlie t. Gal n sagt daher: Nur, wenn sich alle Regierungen bereit erkl rten, keinen Krieg mehr zu f hren, wenn abger stet werde, dann gebe er sein Geheimnis preis. Sein Angebot wird zun chst abgelehnt.

They have no families to return to for the summer, so they spend their days in the empty school. A darkness hangs over the three however: the suicide, three months earlier, of classmate Yu. Norio blames Kazuhiko for Yu's death, because it was well-known that Yu loved Kazuhiko; so Kazuhiko is cruel to Norio, and yet has bad dreams. This uneasy arrangement is exacerbated by the arrival of Kaoru, a student set to start classes in the fall - who looks exactly like Yu. Believe it or not, despite the homoerotic elements, this is actually a ghost story.
