[ Story ]

A documentary that captures everyday life at a special nursing home for elderly atomic bombing survivors over the course of two years. Its director is Sakaguchi Katsumi, who has received high praise for his works such as {Ao no To} (blue tower).
A facility for aged atomic bombing survivors exists in Nagasaki City called the Meguminooka Nagasaki Genbaku Home (Grace hill Nagasaki atom bomb home). To pass on their knowledge, the residents themselves put on plays based on their own experiences of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki for children who visit the home. This documentary sheds light on these atomic bombing victims as they struggle with the pain they bear and live with fierce determination.
