It is the present day and Matsuko's nephew, Sho, is cleaning out his dead aunt's filthy apartment. Through a series of encounters, he gradually learns of his aunt's checkered life. Matsuko, in fact, seems at time to be speaking to Sho from the grave as he becomes the audience's guide to her life. We first see Matsuko in the early 1970s as a popular junior high school teacher in her hometown until a fateful day when she imprudently assumes the blame for a theft by one of her favorite pupils, Ryu. She loses her job, her reputation and subsequently, the welcome of even her own family. We then travel back to her childhood to see her desperately seeking the affections of a father who appears to care more for Matsuko's chronically ill sister.
