Based on the international best-seller by Arthur Golden, "Memoirs of a Geisha" is an epic story of love and betrayal set against the broad and rapidly changing social canvas of 20th century Japan.

From her start as a common household maid, she blossoms into one of Kyoto's most renowned geishas, surviving the envy and treachery of the competition.
