"Sada" follows the entire life of Sada Abe. From the age of 15 when she was raped, to her descent into prostitution, and the crime of passion which became a national sensation.
- 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.
