For her fourth film, director Kinuyo Tanaka reunites with screenwriter Sumie Tanaka to explore the reformation of prostitutes.

Girls Of The Night follows Kuniko (Hisako Hara), an escort who enters a rehabilitation centre after the Prostitution Prevention Law prohibits her line of work. But creating a new life proves treacherous—wherever Kuniko goes, the past seems to catch up with her.

Once more taking on a challenging subject matter, Tanaka paints an empathetic portrait of a fragile community of untamed outcasts.
