"Tenpyo wo Kakenuketa Otoko to Onna-tachi" is a docudrama on Nara's 1,200-year-old Toshodai-ji Temple.
The Toshodai-ji was founded by a Chinese priest named Ganjin (Katsuo Nakamura) in 759. The Imperial family had invited Ganjin to Japan to promote Buddhism. Ganjin goes through great hardships in order to come to Japan and becomes blind in the process. He is given a house in Nara by the Emperor and, with the help of his monk assistant, Nyoho (Shido Nakamura), starts building the great structure on the site where his house stands. Ganjin died in 763, but his work was continued by Nyoho.
