Synopsis

The Second World War is over and Japan sets about rebuilding her shattered cities. Masuji Ono, an ageing painter, looks back over his life and assesses a career that has coincided with the rise of Japanese militarism. Once the objects of high renown, his paintings now appear fatally flawed by propagandist concerns.
