After the death of his wife, a school teacher raises his son alone in Kanazawa. One day the father accompanies his students on a field trip and one of the students is fatally injured. Taking responsibility for the accident, the father puts his son in a boarding school and goes to work in a factory in Tokyo. The son grows up to become a teacher and eventually meets his father again. He expresses his desire to quit his job, move to Tokyo and live together with his father.
