Synopsis

When her husband neglects his chores, Yamene sets out toward the brush, ignoring warnings that the spirits beyond the village perimeter will drive her mad. She encounters several dwarf spirits and a larger spirit whose mask she takes after defeating it in a wrestling match. Yamene puts on the mask at a village festival and poses as the spirit everyone fears. She states that men must now do the women's work while the women must relax in the shade. Turnabout is short-lived, however, when the spirit demands the mask be returned or the village will suffer terrible consequences.
