In this black-and-white drama, acclaimed Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu shines a light on the dark side of sisterhood, exposing shame and family secrets in postwar Tokyo. While living with their aging father (Chishu Ryu), two sisters (Setsuko Hara and Ineko Arima) face shocking revelations at home, the most profound of which is that their mother -- whom they long assumed to be dead -- may still be alive.
