Overflowing with imagery of the Cold War seen through Japan's eyes, Ayako is firmly set in realism taking inspiration from a number of historical events that occurred over the American occupation and the cultural revolution which soon followed. It focuses on the Tenge clan, a once-powerful family of landowners living in a rural northern Japan. The increasing influence of political, economic and social change begins to tear into the many Tenge siblings.
