Title year:2002
Original dialogue(s):Japanese
Version(s):EST
Running time:96 min sec
Description:August 14, 1945: Japan's emperor surrendered to the Allied powers. The war was over. The country turned the page on that dark chapter in history. But what of the crimes committed by Japan during wartime? Can all be wiped from memory as cleanly as it has been excised from history textbooks? Courageous citizens are speaking out against government censorship. They want to tell the whole story of war and thereby confront Japan with its past. The issues strike to the heart of Japan's national identity. A tale of hope.
