Naruse explores female relationships in a rapidly modernising Japan through three women of different status in the same household. The intelligence of the maid and the naivety of the mistress emphasises the disparate abilities of factions of Japanese society to keep up with the changes. One of the great Japanese 'women's pictures'.
