It is for these very reasons why Orin, a sixty-nine year old woman, must travel up the mountaintop to die in the middle of winter. Refusing to leave the village would only disgrace her family. However, before she goes off to meet her maker, she is bound and determined to find a suitable wife for her dear son Tatsuhei.
