    • Synopsis
    • THE WOMEN OF THE INNER PALACE, the movie, brings to climactic finale three hugely popular mini-series of the same name about the tumultuous lives of the wives and concubines within the veiled, inner corridors of the Shogunate court. The series aired on Fuji Television Network between 2003 and 2005.
      Directed by Toru Hayashi, the film delves into what is arguably the most celebrated romance scandal to ever take place in the expansive halls of Edo Castle. Set during the short reign of child Shogun Ietsugu Tokugawa, who assumed rule at the age of four, the plot revolves around a legendary power struggle between the young shogun’s natural mother - concubine to the previous Shogun - and his official wife, who must watch her stake in the bloodline fade.
