Plot & Details
In this romantic and erotic drama, Oda has achieved a place in the world which makes him think that it would be appropriate for him to find a mistress. He is a well-known poet and is married. He selects Yuko, a girl still in school, and duly finds an apartment for her. However, he is seldom around, and she spends a lot of her time waiting for him to come around and make love to her. Their relationship is very uneven: she is not allowed to play around, while he carries on with a divorced woman next door. They almost have a child, but he insists on an abortion. Later, when he dies, she shows up at his funeral. Her presence there is unwelcome, though everyone knows who she is.
