The bestseller from the USA

As Korean immigrants, Sunja and her sons live in Japan like second-class people. As she tries to come to terms, Noa and Mozasu challenge their fate. One makes it to the best universities in the country, the other is drawn to the gambling halls of the criminal underworld of the yakuza.

An opulent family epic about loyalty and the search for one's own identity.
