Tachibana is a drunk whose gambling compulsion ends up putting him in a bad way with the local Yakuza. Unable to pay his debt, he uses the deed to his wife Izumi's restaurant (which she inherited from her deceased father) as collateral in order to stay out of trouble with the thugs.
A certain regular client at the restaurant is in love with the wife. He consoles her during her current turmoil when the deed to her restaurant is used by her husband as collateral for his debt to the Yazuza. The wife has sex with him at 43:10. And then there's that part near the end of the film where the yakuza ties her up and subjects her to some sadomasochistic treatment.
