Heartbreak leads a desperate woman down a path of danger in the wartime saga "Story of a Prostitute" (1965). A jilted woman flees Japan for the life of a "comfort woman" on the Manchurian frontlines of World War II, becoming a lover-for-hire to be used and abused by soldiers at will. When she betrays a sadistic Lieutenant by falling for his subordinate officer, she and her forbidden love must plot to escape or face a brutal punishment. Based on a novel by Taijiro Tamura, this tragic story was previously dramatized in " Escape At Dawn" (1950).
