Widow Nobuko shares a home with Tamiko and Junjiro, her late husband's two children. Tamiko is a young woman with pretensions of independence, while Junjiro is bed-ridden, afflicted by illness and the sadness of a recent separation. Family tensions grow when Nobuko decides to look for a suitor to marry Tamiko. The choice falls between Dr. Ihara, a shameless womanizer, and Lord Komatsu, a romantic with assertiveness problems. An autopsy of post-war anguish, A Hole Of My Own paints an unforgiving portrait of the new Japanese society where "man is man's wolf".

A Hole of My Own Making is a 1955 Japanese film directed by Tomu Uchida.
