A film in three parts, full of lyricism, love and hate, encounter and separation, which focuses on a station as a place where people gather and take their leave..
-1976- Eiji follows a series of murders. Suzuko, a pretty waitress, feigns ignorance and sets up a false alibi for her brother, Goro. Her boyfriend deliberately tells her that he would like to see Goro before he marries her. She hesitantly takes him to a station, knowing the police are doing a stakeout.
-1979- On his way home in Ofuyu, Eiji sees a lonely restaurant proprietress, Kiriko. They quickly fall in love. However, he finds a man watching her in a crowd at a shrine. When he returns to her town, he receives an anonymous tip about Criminal 22 and rushes to her apartment.
Note: This film contains some scenes of a violent and sexual nature.
