Swiss-Japanese filmmaker Aya Domenig, the granddaughter of a doctor on duty for the Red Cross during the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima, approaches the experience of her deceased grandfather by tracing the lives of a doctor and of former nurses who once shared the same experience. While gathering the memories and present views of these very last survivors, the nuclear disaster in Fukushima strikes and history seems to repeat itself.
 
« It is not just a movie about personal experience and about what happened in the past, but it is something that is very relevant today. Every minute that is in that film is part of that film and should be there. » (Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter)
 
« Beautifully intimate and personal, yet it reaches out across the world in terms of the issues that are at hand. » (Indiewire)
 
« Ein berührendes Zeitdokument über das kollektive Verdrängen.» (Basler Zeitung)
 
« Damit gelingt Aya Domenig weit mehr als ein höchst ergreifendes Familienporträt ihrer japanischen Familie. Sie liefert Pflichtstoff für die Menschheit.» (Tageswoche)
