Scene With A Red Bird, A

a Scene With a Red Bird is a fable that depicts Japan's civil society after World War II. the story centers around a blind woman and her younger brother, who decide to work off their parents' debt after their suicides but are suppressed by a committee which had been formed to investigate the parents' suicides. the woman's devotion to the debt brings anxiety to the townspeople who hope for nothing but a quiet, undisturbed life. This makes her a 'red bird'-a symbol of danger or a red light to a society that is unable to face its collective guilt.
