In mid-19th century Japan, the imperial court's and Shogun's battle for power intensifies with the arrival of Americans demanding a treaty. Told from the point of view of Princess Kazunomiya, this part of Japanese history is given a personal spin as one of the people who ultimately help to bring about a new Japan relates the events and occurrences from the 1858 imperial court.
