In 1903, a young Scotswoman named Mary Mackenzie sets sail for China to marry her betrothed, a military attache in Peking. But soon after her arrival, Mary falls into an adulterous affair with a young Japanese nobleman, scandalizing the British community. Casting her out of the European community, her compatriots tear her away from her small daughter. Abandoned and alone, Mary learns to survive over forty tumultuous years in Asia, including two world wars and the cataclysmic Tokyo earthquake of 1923, carving out a life for herself in Japanese society, despite the hardships and ostracism she faces as both a Westerner and a woman.  

 

*Very, very few prints of THE GINGER TREE exist. After an extensive search we found what we believe to be the best surviving elements. We are pleased to make this available here on A 2-disc DVD set, however the quality is not what you would expect of a state-of-the-art re-mastered print. It is rough. On a scale of 1 to 10 it would be a six or seven. But it is great for those who truly wish to see this almost lost wonderful and very important miniseries.
