"I will be abandoned when I turn twenty years old."
In this country, beautiful women are considered to be evil specters who ruin lives of men. The law requires them to be abandoned to a mountain when they turn 20 years old, because people think they're selfish and greedy.
A man, Toshio, performs the important duty to carry beautiful women to the mountaintop. He lives with his ugly wife happily, and people have great trust in them. One day, the wife follows her husband to the mountain because of some doubts, and finds out her husband's secret violation of the law.
