Nobus newfound bachelor life is regularly interrupted by Masi who comes by to pick up and drop off Nobus weekly laundry as part of the duties she still feels a Japanese wife owes to her husband.

Their two daughters have opposing feelings about the breakup- Marsha, the more traditional of the daughters, wants to reunite her parents, but not even Nobu and Masis nostalgia for their courtship in a World War II Japanese-American internment camp can bring them back together again.

The other daughter, Judy, whos been estranged from her father since marrying a black American, has been supportive of her mothers attempt at freedom. It is not until Masi tentatively begins a relationship with Sadao, a widower, that the severity of Nobus traditional values reveals itself- he is inconsolable, obstinate and reclusive, leaving Kiyoko, a widowed restaurant owner who has fallen in love with him, unable to break down his defenses and get him to begin a new life with her.

Finally, Masis decision to divorce Nobu pushes him to the point where he begs her to return to him, but the marriage is irreparable, and Nobu is left at the end of the play contemplating how best to re-acquaint himself with his daughters, friends and most important, his ex-wife now that he begins to perceive that things can never again be as they were.
