A lady's memoirs of the young kamikaze pilots who ate at her restaurant, as told by Ishihara Shintaro, the Governor of Tokyo (and brother of movie star Ishihara Yujiro).
With the war turning against the Japanese, the military high command consider the use of suicide pilots to attack allied shopping in the Pacific. In the south of Japan, young pilots arrive to begin preparations for their first and only missions. Nearby to the kamikaze training base, a tavern owner provides comfort and respite despite objections from the military. The movie highlights the the dichotomy of dying for Japan, without having experienced Japanese life in full.
