Long ago, a young woman named Unai-Otome lived in the village of Ikuta.She had two suitors, both of whom loved her very much. Unai-Otome was torn apart, not knowing which of the young men to choose. In anguish, she chose death. But although her intentions were pure, even death did not bring the respite she longed for "A Japanese Drama of the Absurd," based on the Noh play "Motomezuka the Seekers Mound."
