PlotEdit

Amidst endless construction and aircraft noise, a family whose father died slowly disintegrates. While daughter Tamiko struggles with her stepmother Nobuko's attempts to marry her off to careless physician Ihura, her bed-ridden brother Junjirō grieves for his ex-wife Keiko who left him for another man. Although Ihura is more interested in Nobuko, he has a short-lived affair with Tamiko, who herself cares only for Ihura's future social and financial status. After selling the family's last remaining properties, Tamiko and Junjirō refuse to give Nobuko her share. Nobuko moves out of the house, announcing that she will take legal steps against her stepchildren's decision. Shortly before his death, Junjirō confesses to Tamiko that he lost the family's money and the mortgaged house in ill-fated stock market investments.
