Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Depicts a young office girl against the backdrop of postwar Japanese society, a chaotic society just liberated from a prolonged period of wartime repression. The story's focus, however, is on the biological forces that work on the heroine from within and eventually change her into an almost different person.
