A visually beautiful love story about a young geisha, O-Shin, who works in Tokyos red light district. When O-Shin finds herself falling in love with a samurai that fate has brought to her brothel, her sister, Kikuno secretly hopes that O-Shin can be set free of the brothel so she may love at her own will. Eventually, O-Shin meets Ryosuke, a weary, troubled customer the tide has brought to the brothel. Their relationship grows into one of respect and love. When a thunderous storm hits the brothel and all the villagers flee, O-Shin and Kikuno are left to contemplate their fate.
