In the late 1950s prostitution was banned in Japan and if a woman was found exercising this profession she was sent to a reformatory. This is a story of Kuniko, who is released from the reformatory and tries to build a new life. She starts working as a maid in the household of the Takagis, owners of a grocery store. Mrs. Takagi is satisfied with Kuniko at first, but after she finds out about her past, she starts treating her disdainfully. Will society ever accept Kuniko?

At this moment, we do not have any future performances scheduled.
