Shortly after the end of the war, Kawahara Kimiko (Toda Erika) moves to Shigaraki, a pottery town in Shiga Prefecture, from Osaka. The oldest of three girls, she is a hardworking person who has supported her family (Sakuraba Nanami, Fukuda Mayuko, Kitamura Kazuki, Tomita Yasuko) since she was a child.
Having grown up around Shigaraki pottery, Kimiko eventually immerses herself in the male-dominated pottery world, where she proceeds to blaze a trail as a pioneering pottery artist. She falls in love and marries her husband, who is also a ceramic artist. United by their aspiration to be the ideal creative couple, they strive to create one-of-a-kind Shigaraki items using their own kiln. She becomes a mother of two children and also cultivates many disciples.
