the early 1940s, a
young woman named Tamayo marries Shingu, a wealthy middle-age bachelor
employed as an assistant to the Minister. At first the marriage is perfect;
he's a loving husband and enthusiastic lover. But soon the romance cools
("Now, he only wants to make love every 7 to 10 days," Tamayo
laments). She discovers that the reason for his lack of interest has
something to do with a secret locked away in the attic... a secret that
is changing him from an affectionate husband into a stranger.
