This compelling period melodrama revolves around a long-suffering woman's relationship with her brilliant but self-destructive writer husband in post World War II Tokyo. Based on a semi-autobiographical 1947 novel by Osamu Dazai, the story focuses less on the womanizing, heavy-drinking, and suicidal novelist, than on the wife who suffers, loving him.
