Taki no Shiraito is a very independent young woman with a famous water juggling act in a travelling carnival troupe. She falls in love with an orphaned carriage driver, Kinya Murakoshi, and pledges to put him through law school in Tokyo. She always encloses money in her letters to him, until one hard winter there is no work to be found.

DVD-R has Japanese intertitles with switchable English and Spanish subtitles. Voice narration of the intertitles is available on two audio tracks: one with a woman's voice; the other with a man's.  Approx. 99 mins.  See film samples for sound and video quality!
