In the lush tradition of the glorious films by Merchant and Ivory Productions comes the true life story of Leonie Gilmour (Emily Mortimer), whose life crossed continents, wars, and cultures, embodied with courage and passion in search of art and freedom. As an independent young woman seeking to overcome the restrictive female roles in turn-of-the-century America, she is retrained by the famous Japanese poet, Yone Noguchi (Shidô Nakamura) as his editor. Their relationship evolves romantically; however, Yone abruptly leaves when she shares with him that she is pregnant. Following him to Japan, she is cast along to raise their son in a society with few opportunities for women.
