Insect Woman

Insect Woman

1964, Drama
Economic prospects are grim for young Tome Matsuki (Sachiko Hidari), who was born to impoverished parents in the Japanese countryside. Just out of her teens, Tome -- who's now pregnant and alone -- finds herself working at tough manual labor for a meager wage. Feeling desperate, she gives away her child, Nobuko (Jitsuko Yoshimura), and takes a custodial job at a brothel. There she discovers that through prostitution she can claw her way out of poverty, so she begins to climb up the ranks.
