Nakama Yukie to star in NHK spring 2013 drama "Shima no Sensei"

Nakama Yukie will star in the NHK spring 2013 drama "Shima no Sensei" (Island Teacher) which will begin its run from 25 May at 9pm on Saturdays. The drama which consists of 6 episodes, features Nakama as Natsumura Chihiro, a teacher who returns to her hometown on an island for the first time in 20 years to teach. Chihiro had a hard life during her junior high days due to her family issues and suffers a setback when teaching in a Tokyo school so she decides to go back to the island to teach and reset her life. Due to the small number of students on the island, the primary and junior high schools are combined into one where Natsumura comes into contact with students who get placed into foster care at the island because they were being bullied in city schools and stopped turning up for lessons.

Filming is set to begin soon and expected to last till early June at the Amami islands and studios in Tokyo.
