The young Dutchman Jacob de Zoet arrives to Nagasaki in 1799. Here, at the East India Company’s most remote trading station, he hopes to get rich. However, while fulfilling his assignment - an audit of the enterprise - he discovers a network of corruption and embezzlement. When he falls in love with Orito, the Japanese daughter of a Samurai and a midwife, he becomes caught between the two cultures.
