Japan during World War II. The front page of a Japanese newspaper. A Japanese banner. A large outdoor gathering of Japanese people kneeling. They rise all together at the beginning of some event. A family of three, father, mother and daughter, seated on the floor in a house. The man reads from a scroll, perhaps something written by his daughter. A Japanese newspaper showing a map of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding regions. Pedestrians move along a street. A man drops a rolled piece of artwork and another pedestrian picks it up. He hands it to the man who dropped it and expresses pleasure at recognizing him from the past. The two of them go to the artist's studio. Oil paintings in the studio, some on a wall and some rest against tables. The visitor admires the paintings as his host, the artist, bends over small Hibachi. The two men squat on the floor over a Hibachi. One of them looks through a magazine of art work from around the world. Two men talk. View of studio shows tubes of oil paints, paintings and sketches of warships, painting of Japanese Naval war ensign, and paintings and books on a shelf. Models of warships in a bookcase. The two men converse, as one smokes. Papers pinned on a wall include a painting of a warship; a warship recognition chart; a picture of a submarine and a picture of a Cruiser warship. The two men lie on the floor and reminisce. Articles on furniture in the room include: radio; a bust; model airplane; model of a naval warship.The two men settle down to sleep, on the floor, still reminiscing.
