Yuko is back in Japan after being freed as a hostage in the Middle
But six months after, her return is proving to be much more of
an ordeal. It seems the whole of Japanese society is against her
after being embarrassed and horrified at the international attention
she received. Yuko is «bashed» every day by insults in the street,
anonymous phone calls and even physical violence.
Fired from her job, her isolation from the outside world deepens
along with her despair.
After losing her only supporter – her father - she begins to think the
unthinkable: to return to the only place where the expressions on
people’s faces aren’t cold or filled with anger, to the only place she
has ever felt needed.
While buying Japanese sweets for the Middle Eastern children she
allows herself a secret little smile.
