Sometime during the 11th century, Taira no Masauji is a provincial governor, who has fallen into disfavor with his superiors for opposing another conscription from among the peasants in his domain. He is exiled to some distant province and his wife, Tamaki (Kinuyo Tanaka) with the two children, Zushio and Anju, is sent to her parents' home.
