Synopsis
Kikunosuke (Hanayagi), the adopted son of Kikugoro the 5th (Gonjuro Kawarazaki), is kept in the dark regarding his lack of talent as a performer, and his uncertainty leads him to drink. Servant Otoku (Kakuko Mori) grows concerned for Kikunosuke's wellbeing, and gently advises him of his shortcomings. The two grow closer, but Kikunosuke's adoptive mother Osato (Yoko Umemura) denounces their relationship, and Otoku is sent back to her hometown.
