[Synopsis]

To mark the 77th memorial of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki and the end of the war, we have spent a year archiving the voices of hibakusha (A-Bomb survivors), people who have rarely spoken about their experiences. Hibakusha recount their experiences, including how they hid their feelings for 76 years without talking to family or friends, how they were hurt, and how they were subjected to discrimination and prejudice. While the number of people who can speak about those days is dwindling, the importance of passing on the tragedy of war is being reevaluated. In addition to tragic stories, you will hear heartwarming episodes with U.S. soldiers and their thoughts on peace from a different perspective from the A-bomb experiences that have been told until now.
