    Tells the misadventures of a spineless woman who suffers from a mix of injustice and misfortune in feudal Japan, worsened by her lack of resolve at certain moments.
    Her life looks like a torrent than can change courses at any moment, leaving us with a sentiment of extreme vulnerability.
    The depiction of the Tokugawa shogunate, brilliant, is reinforced by the beauty of Japanese interiors.
