Synopsis: 
A 20-year old poet falls in love with a 90-year old woman and a young girl waits for a long-forgotten lover in this double-bill of Two Noh plays by famous Japanese writer, Yukio Mishima. In "Sotoba komachi", A poet meets Komachi, a repulsive-looking old woman, at a Tokyo park in the night. She expresses the memory of when she had been lovely 80 years ago. She reminisces on a night in the 1880s, and together with the help of the poet (who acts the part of the Military Officer with whom she fell in love), they relive that night. The poet realizes that she is still beautiful, and sees past her ragged clothes and wretched body. But expressing her beauty can only result in death. In "Hanjo" (a bittersweet story of unrequited love), the beautiful Hanako looks for her lover, Yoshio, at a train station. With an opened fan in her arms, peering into the face of every man who alights, she returns each time disappointed to her waiting-room bench. Will her lover return to her, or will she continue her lonely search. Meanwhile. Jitsuko, who bought Hanako from her geisha contract, does all she could to retain the status quo.
