Of course.

Is it true?

What question!

I'm worried.

It's useless.

I'm treating you well.

What else do you want?

I'll be even nicer.


Where is the director?

I don't know.

- It worries me.

- Why?

I just got a phone call.

The police is coming.

- What?

- A search!


We must not keep that here.

I have to stay here.

What do you want to do?

Can I help you?

Can you hide it somewhere?

I'll take it home.

Thansk a lot.

It's heavy.

I'll manage.


Your coat is trailing on the ground.

Did Natsuko go out?

No, she should be here.

Open! Quick!

You? At this hour?

What's going on?

There's a police search.

I took it to hide it.

Put it somewhere.

Take care of it.

What were you doing, Natsuko?

Nothing special.

Don't lie.

Watch what you're doing.

I must take care of you

without her parents.

You know it very well.

Some men took advantage

of me on the boat.

I often considered killing myself.

It's the hope of living happily

here that stopped me.

It would have been better

if I had been sold.

I could be his mistress.

The director talked to you?

Yes. I'm not a kid anymore,

I can do whatever I want.

Think carefully.

Leave me alone.


I was wondering how you were doing.

Did your husband come back?

Unfortunately, no.

I'm sorry.

I'm free to do whatever I want.

It's about what you proposed me.

Are you ready?

She's still not back yet?

I'll check at Owada's.

Maybe she's still there.

Where is she hiding?

You never had sex with my sister?

No, never.

So why did she run away?

I don't know.

Maybe it's her.


I wanted to check your place.

Is my sister here?


Didn't she come?

What's happening to her?

She doesn't come back home lately.

How do you do?

Make yourself comfortable.

Good bye.
