Stella Artois

During Post-War Japan, Tsuyako lives a demanding life as a mill factory worker, obedient wife, and loving mother.  When an old female lover, Yoshie, pays a surprise visit, she reignites a passion in Tsuyako - one that Tsuyako has repressed herself from feeling again, and has kept hidden since their separation.  After Yoshie witnesses how Tsuyakos new family mistreats her, she begs Tsuyako to leave with her to Tokyo, to live the life that they had always dreamt of together. Tsuyako must choose between her duties as a woman and the promise of freedom, while struggling to maintain the Japanese traditions of culture and respect of her family.
