Description: Yosuke is an unemployed man in his forties, whose wife has just left him. On the advice of an old tramp, he travels to a faraway village, to a certain house, from where one can see a red bridge. In this house there is a vase containing a golden Buddha, stolen from a temple in Kyoto by this old tramp. The man does not find the vase, but meets Saeko, a woman who lives in the house. This strange, kleptomaniac woman has the power to make flowers bloom out of season, to attract fish by the water she secretes when she experiences physical pleasure; the man who "bathes" in such water will rediscover his vitality...
