Japan in the early 1920s. The life of Tamahiki, the eldest son of a wealthy family, changes abruptly one day when his right arm no longer functions properly due to an accident. Now he is no longer considered an inheritance and has to move to the countryside so that his family does not have to endure it.
He isolates himself from the outside world and thinks bitterly about whether this place will be his end. But one day a pretty girl stands at the door, which his father has “bought” for him, so that she can take care of him. It gives him new hope and changes his view of things around him bit by bit.
