Set against Japan’s wartime occupation of Manchuria in the 1930s and 1940s, a Japanese noblewoman enters an arranged marriage with the younger brother of Manchuria’s figurehead Qing Dynasty emperor. Tanaka Kinuyo presents a historical epic saga told from a critical female perspective. Similar to her previous works, she focuses on the protagonist who tries to navigate her life between public commitments and her personal and family aspirations. The way Kinuyo shapes this entanglement this a significant and poignant melodrama.
