Her sister and mentor, full geisha Katsu, has guided Yukie on her journey as a maiko. Now, Katsu brings one last test – a potential danna, before Yukie will have to stand alone and earn her ranking. Will Yukie achieve her newfound desires for love and success? Or will she be cast in the shadows of unpopularity forever?
