Synopsis

In the early 1800s, Japan's Sake was brewed by a select few family dynasties. Rie, the daughter of the house of Omura, has always been fascinated by her family's sake business, even though it is considered unwomanly to take an interest in male concerns and especially bad luck for a woman to even enter a sake brewing house. Her job is to marry well so that her parents can pass down the business to another generation. But, when her chosen husband is more interested in fathering many children with the town's Geishas then in keeping the business alive, Rie must take matters into her own hands or risk losking the business that is her life. She makes a radical decision that may cost her everything.
