In September 1954, a ferry sank during a storm in the narrow Tsuagaru channel between Hokkaido, and mainland, killing 1426 passengers. The accident brought about a demand for the building of a tunnel beneath the channel. Akutsu Go is sent to cape Tappi at the tip of the Tsugaru peninsula to conduct a preliminary survey for the tunnel construction. One winter day, he finds a woman standing on a precipice, obviously about to commit suicide. Her carelessness had caused a fire in a hotel which killed eleven people, and she could no longer live with memory of this incident. Akutsu takes the woman, named Tae, to a cheap restaurant where she happens to deliver the baby of the restaurant
proprietress, Oren. This eases Tae’s agony…
