A young woman named Yumiko becomes troubled by the notion that she brings death to people close to her. She still dreams of her grandmother who she lost when she was 12. Now married with a young son, she and her husband Ikuo appear to be happy together, but Yumiko’s life is abruptly changed by her husband’s sudden death – and was it an accident or suicide? Trying to cope with her loss, eventually Yumiko remarries and perhaps can find happiness again with Tamio, but on a return to her old home, a flood of troubling memories begin to haunt her.
