This is a story about a family in the post World War Tokyo; older parents, their 28-year-old daughter Noriko, their married son, his devoted wife. Their only discontent is Noriko's lack of a husband. Society is changing: she works, she has women friends who tease and argue, her brother sees her independence as impudence, she sees it as normal. When her boss suggests that she marry a 40-year-old bachelor who is his friend, all the members of her family press her to accept. Without seeking their advice, and to their chagrin, Noriko determines her own course of action.
Did You Know?
Noriko should marry to a man who we prepared.
I agree. She must settle down as soon as possible.
