Program Abstract: "The young Zoroku Murata, who achieved remarkable academic success at Koan Ogata's Teki-juku (a private school), eventually becomes the head of the school but goes back to his village to become a doctor. He get married and lead a quiet life. However, he is ordered to enter government service for the Uwajima clan, who tries to adopt western technology, to produce a Black Ship (western-style ship) and a western-style fortress. Meanwhile, Zoroku tutored Ine, a daughter of Sieboldt, in Dutch and medicine, but their relationship gradually develops into more than the usual teacher-student relationship."
