- The legendary classic that never fades
The highest rated drama ever recorded in Japan (62.9% at its peak) and broadcast in more than 60 countries, this is the saga of a woman who overcomes poverty through extraordinary grit and a good heart.
As the 20th century opens, Oshin, a poor farmer's daughter, is sent to work at the age of 7 to support her large family. As a teen, she makes her way to Tokyo, gains a means of independence through apprenticeship, and falls in love. Heartbreak, marriage, the 1923 earthquake, and a world war -- Oshin perseveres through the uncertainties of the time, always in the belief that happiness is not a given, but something you have to find.
