    • Synopsis
    • Daniel Holder's father was killed fighting the Japanese during the Second World War...something he thought he had made peace with long ago, until a recent discovery revealed to him the cruel and brutal way in which his father died. When Daniel's beloved artist son Mickey takes a job in Japan teaching English, it creates a rift between them. When Mickey dies there in a traffic accident, Daniel's profound regret at their estrangement is matched only by his increased hatred of Japan...a country he thinks took not only his father, but now his only child as well. Despite these feelings, he is convinced by his brother Joseph to go to Japan to retrieve Mickey's final paintings. Daniel goes to Kochi but, despite the kindness he is shown and the signs of the happy life Mickey led, he cannot let go of his hatred. But one unexpected discovery changes everything for Daniel, forcing him to reassess his feeling for Japan and the life he will henceforth lead.
