    • Synopsis
    • Akihiro, a native Japanese filmmaker living in Paris, comes to Hiroshima to interview survivors for a documentary celebrating the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing. Deeply moved by the interviews, he decided to take a break and wanders through the city during which he meets Michiko, a merry and enigmatic young woman. Michiko takes him for a joyful and improvised journey from the city towards the sea where the horrors of the past are mingled to the simplicity of the present. Thanks to her, Akihiro will escape from the darkness of the disaster and find a way to reach the simple lights of life.
