Sada Abe is an ex-prostitute who becomes involved in an obsessive love affair with the master of the household Kichizo Ishida. What starts as a casual diversion escalates into a passion that holds no bounds.
- Based on a true incident that was a national sensation in 1936. Sada Abe was a prostitute turned waitress who got into a heated love affair with her married employer Kichizo Ishida. The couple would have marathon love making sessions that would last for days. Eventually Sada choked Kichizo to death - due to her account that she could not bear the though of him with other women - and then castrated his penis. She then placed the penis in her handbag before fleeing.
