Kamehachi, a jobless carver of Buddhist statues, earns his living by making lifelike gures for freak shows. During the autumn fair, a member of a local well-to-do family visits the performance and requests Kamehachi to make a doll of his fatally ill daughter Tsubaki to copy her mortal beauty as is.
