The story is set in the aristocratic society of the mid-Heian period, and the main character is Murasaki Shikibu (Mahiro), who wrote ``The Tale of Genji,'' later said to be the world's oldest female literature. The screenplay was written by Shizuka Oishi, who is writing for a historical drama for the second time since 2006's ``Kumei ga Tsuji,'' and it depicts the glittering world of the Heian nobility and the life of a woman who lived, wrote, and loved.
