Synopsis by Lucy Haig

A young woman named Suzu (voiced by Rena Nounen) moves from Hiroshima to the Japanese countryside to be with her new husband Shusaku (Yoshimasa Hosoya). As World War II rages, she must provide for her family with limited rations while Shusaku fights in the Navy. But when she learns of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, she struggles to find a reason to go on living. Directed by Sunao Katabuchi, this anime drama was adapted from a manga series of the same name by Fumiyo Kono.
