Hana will be going to Oakland, California to marry Taro Takeda, a man she has never met. This is an arranged marriage that was popular in the early 1900s. When she arrives, she finds that Taro is much older than the picture he sent her. However, she has made the decision to marry him and then must adjust to life in America.
