Synopsis:
In 1950, middle-age couple Shigematsu (Kazuo Kitamura) and Shigeko (Etsuko Ichihara) lead a tranquil village existence with Yasuko (Yoshiko Tanaka), the 25-year-old niece they have taken in as their own daughter. While Shigematsu seeks solace whiling away the long summer days with his companions and fellow bomb survivors at the local carp fishing pond, the dark oppressive clouds of the devastation of five years before loom ever present, as the couple find their repeated attempts to find a suitable marriage match for Yasuko fall through due to the suspicion that her blood is tainted from the blast.
