Yasuko (Yoshiko Tanaka) and her family contend with radiation-induced illness and their positions as social outcasts in postwar Japan after surviving America's 1945 atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima. Will Yasuko be able to find a man who'll marry her? Japanese writer-director Shohei Imamura's irony-rich film, which is based on Ibuse Masuji's novel, also stars Kazuo Kitamura, Etsuko Ichihara and Shoichi Ozawa.
