Based on a semi-biographical novel about the historic Suzuki Shoten, this is the story of a woman who turned a local sugar wholesaler into a world-class trading company, and of the man who helped her. The cast includes “Detective Conan” Shun Oguri and Japanese drama queen, Yuki Amami. Having married into Suzuki Shoten, a Kobe sugar wholesaler, Yone Suzuki (Yuki Amami) lives a stable life, raising her children while clashing with her strict and conservative husband Iwajirou. With her husband’s sudden death, however, Yone’s life changes course completely as she takes the helm of Suzuki Shoten, and from then on referred to as “Oie-san”. With the support and guidance of the company’s employee Kaneko Naokichi (Shun Ogori), Yone grows the company from a humble sugar wholesaler to one of Japan’s biggest trading company. But after surviving numerous difficulties, the pair are about to meet their greatest trial when the company is involved in the Rice Riots of 1918, facing a disastrous end.
