Both traditional and audacious, Michiko of Japan did what no other Japanese empress had succeeded in doing before her: she crafted her own destiny. As the first commoner to join the imperial family in 1959, this determined young woman saved the oldest hereditary dynasty in the world by reconciling it with its people and embodying, with her husband Emperor Akihito, a new, modern and peaceful Japan.
Anne-Sophie Chaumier Le Conte tells us the story of this exceptional destiny in an new documentary, coproduced with the NHK.
