Summary
Daidai and her husband Hiroshi have what many of their friends believe is a perfect life. Daidai has recently left her job as curator of the Japanese American Museum in Los Angeles's Little Tokyo so that she and Hiroshi, a university professor, can try for a baby. Frustrated by their lack of success so far, and by their increasingly clinical love life, Daidai befriends one of Hiroshi's graduate students. New to Los Angeles, Satsuki clings to her Japanese heritage and introduces Daidai to her love of tea. But soon, Satsuki is appearing at their home uninvited, and Daidai grows suspicious. Her worries only increase when Satsuki's estranged mother turns up dead in an LA monastery. Spurred by this shocking event, Daidai begins to delve into the death of Satsuki's mother-an apparent suicide, while Satsuki and Hiroshi's friendship seems to deepen. Everything changes when Daidai accompanies Satsuki to Japan to visit her wealthy father in North Western Japan. As Daidai struggles to better comprehend Satsuki's troubled family life, the two women are suddenly separated by an earthquake and the resulting chaos from the Fukushima disaster. The tragedy only continues to mount when Satsuki's father is discovered dead. Returning to Los Angeles, Daidai acquiesces to Satsuki's request to move in with she and Hiroshi. But Satsuki's dangerous and erratic behavior is not quelled by this act of generosity, and Daidai suddenly finds in herself in a fight to keep everything she holds dear
