Director Akira Kurosawa's statement on the Americanization of the Japanese press, this social commentary tells the tale of Ichiro (Toshirô Mifune), a famous artist who happens to be in the same vacation spot as Miyako (Yoshiko Yamaguchi), a well-known singer. When a fan magazine fabricates a liaison between the two celebrities and prints an article about their affair, Ichiro files slander charges against the tabloid. However, his lawyer, Hiruta (Takashi Shimura), has his own agenda.
