This undistinguished softcore item from Japan's Nikkatsu stable is primarily worthwhile for fans of cult filmmaker Masaru Konuma, whose Ikenie Fujin may be the star of the studio's generally interminable and offensive <I>Best SM</I> series. Admirers of that film will probably be disappointed with this listless item, concerning a scorned woman (Mari Tanaka) having an affair with a married truck-driver (Shusaku Muto). Muto's guilt becomes too much for Tanaka, who leaves town only to die in a car accident. Both American and Japanese "adult melodramas" like this usually followed the same pattern: lots of sex, a betrayal, and an attempt at reconciliation thwarted by one partner (usually the woman) meeting a tragic end.
