Fukushima and Nagasaki: Our film ties them together, as their links have become dangerously clearer.
Sakue Shimohira was ten years old and hiding in a Nagasaki shelter when the nuclear bomb dropped on August 9, 1945. She survived and has dedicated her life to making sure that what happened to her will never happen to anyone again. Today she continues to speak out and inspire people everywhere.
Sakue’s story of survival and its aftermath is the core of this powerfully moving documentary. We follow her, in the company of students Fumi and Haruka, as they talk to high school and college students in London, New York and Nagasaki, and we see Sakue in a gripping encounter with a Holocaust survivor.
