The wife of the main character in the novel makes money to the family by prostitution, and prevents her husband from living a normal life. However, the main character cannot face the reality surrounding himself and his wife. Despite having enough clues to show that his wife is engaging in prostitution, he gives up the thinking always.
Each page of the book represents the main character's fragmentary thinking, and all of them become clues about his wife. As the novel progresses, clues overlap, and when the novel reaches the last page, it reveals visually why the main character cannot live a normal life.
