Noboru Yasumoto is a confident young man ready to make his mark on the world as a personal doctor for the shogun of Japan. However, as a result of events beyond his control, he is appointed instead as an intern at a charity hospital under the guidance of Dr. Kyojô Niide, aka Red Beard. Yasumoto is certain that a terrible mistake has been made. He openly disobeys Red Beard and refuses to follow any of the rules of the hospital in the hope that he will be “kicked out” and released from the perceived prison. Thus, the stage is set for a series of opportunities that gradually take Yasumoto step-by-step into the true meaning of healing.
The most humbling and transformational experiences often come to us in the most unexpected ways. Sometimes we would rather be anywhere but the very place we seem to find ourselves. But through trust, guidance, and a little willingness, we are always shown that things are not what they seem. Love is the most powerful medicine of all and when it is felt, it cannot but be extended. True healing comes through forgiveness, letting go of pride, releasing judgments, and allowing the way to be shown, instead of relying on personal knowledge and experience. In the end, we see that the only problem was a perceptual one, and our prison becomes our paradise!
