This is the story of a 13th-century Buddhist monk, Shinran, who broke his vows of celibacy by marrying the nun Eshinni. As a result they were both exiled to the wilds of the Kanto region in Japan. There they took up housekeeping and raised a family under very arduous conditions. Despite this difficult life they formed the Jodo Shinshu, which became the most popular Buddhist sect in Japan. Eventually they were pardoned and resumed living in Kyoto, where they established the religion Pure Land Buddhism on Mt. Hiei.
