In Search of Last Name is based on the incredible true story of Spy Princess Yoshiko.
Each life is ordinary and extraordinary. So too Yoshiko Kawashima’s, a complex enigma of both, torn between the empires of China and Japan at troubled times (1907-1948). Switching effortlessly between the roles of Manchu princess and Japanese spy, she is feted as a dangerous beauty in military uniform. Yet, raised a foster daughter, she yearns for paternal love and a sense of home. Here, then, is the untold story of a woman who dared to break borders and boundaries at war.
