Summary
"Why would successful women from the world's second largest economic power choose to start their lives over in New York City? The documentary ... explores how several Japanese women struggled to reconcile their traditional upbringing with their desire to create unique lives. To understand these struggles, the director, Kyoko Gasha, shows the deep, powerful influences of Japanese culture on her own life. Kyoko also uncovers stories of other Japanese women in New York City, weaving parallel tales of guilt, denial, sacrifice, success and joy. This is a story of cultures clashing on a personal level" -- Original container
