Overwhelming problems force Marie to leave her home in Germany for the faraway Japan. Once there, she joins a humanitarian organization whose members take care of the victims of the nuclear power plant disaster and of the calamities that devastated the country of the Rising Sun in 2011. When Marie decides to give up work, which she's unable to cope with, she meets Satomi, the last geisha of Fukushima, a woman of extraordinary elegance, though struck by the ruthless fate. Despite the difference in age, temperament and nationality, the two women develop a strong bond.
