but the problem is within

each individual.

We must put an end to this trade

to stop this spirit from spreading.

Our association will carry

on with its goal everywhere.

Sorry, Madam.

Doctor, it's about

Natsuko Kimishima.

I'm listening.

She's my sister.

She told me.


Is she sick?

She has syphilis.

Also, she's pregnant.


Take good care of her.

I understand your principle.

But we can't solve everything

with principles.

Like this girl's case.

Yes, she's Kuriyama's child.

I didn't realize.

My periods aren't regular,

I thought my sickness

was due to alcohol.

My situation doesn't allow

me to have a baby.

But I've changed since I'm pregnant.

The doctor said that

I could be cured.

I'm carrying a child.

Stupid! Why do you want to have

a child from such a scumbag?

The child is innocent.

I could leave if someone

would vouch for me.

I'll call Kuriyama.

Let's leave together.

He'll vouch for you too.

Go back alone if you want.

- Fusako!

- Are you here?

- Are you all right?

- As usual.


No, give them to the others.

- Do you want to shoot up?

- No.

Tell me what you want.

Thank you.

I don't need anything.

How is it going?

Not good at all.

I'll starve if it

doesn't get better.

Do you have children?

I lost them during the war.

My dear... You too!

Why are you talking like that?

You have black thoughts.

Not at all. I diot!

Don't worry.

Take care. I'll be back.

Thank you.

Kimi Yamada.

Fusako Owada.

She's not here.

She's lucky!

Are you coming?

At this hour?

You don't have the money!

Poor bum!

The cops got up my nose.

Say something.

Ask for my forgiveness at least!

I'm not talking to you anymore.


I saw my sister.

I know everything.

Aren't you ashamed?

You're kidding!

I took care of her.
