Pinkerton, an American sailor, rents a house on a hill in Japan, where he moves in with “Butterfly”, his soon-to-be wife. Butterfly is overjoyed to be marrying an American, although Pinkerton plans to leave her once he has found himself an American wife. They get married in this house, and Pinkerton leaves a short while after that. More than three years later, Butterfly still awaits her husband’s return. How long will Butterfly wait for her husband without losing patience? Find out!
