Synopsis
Idealistic young Japanese villagers attempt to organize a collective farm, but a catastrophic flood washes it away. Crushed, a young couple, Genji and Shino, resolve to hang themselves, but only Genji dies, his girlfriend revived by Eisuke, a comrade from the collective who happens upon the scene. Formerly the most idealistic of the farmers, Eisuke shockingly rapes Shino while reviving her. While Shino conceals this crime, Eisuke continues to assault women, and is eventually caught.
