Through her, Akihiro learns to find the bright side of their poor postwar life and especially to never give up.

Heartwarming portrait of life in postwar Japan, with legendary Yoshiyuki Kazuko from Oshima Nagisa’s Empire of Senses (1976) as resolute Granny. In the role of the mother Kudoh Youki, who’s achieved international fame in Snow Falling on Cedars (1999) and Memoirs of a Geisha (2005).
