Having lost her husband in the war, Haruko Inoue (wonderfully played by Yuko Mochizuki) struggles to raise her children. Making innumerable sacrifices for them, including prostituting herself, Haruko decides to send them to live with her brother in Tokyo. Her daughter becomes compromised in a flirtation with a teacher and Haruko rushes to the city. Once in Tokyo, she realizes her children could not love her less and have no respect for her and her sacrifices. Entirely destroyed by this shattering of her illusions, she throws herself in front of a train. ~ Brian Whitener, Rovi, Rovi
