Beautiful Japanese anime about a girl growing up on the outskirts of Hiroshima just before the outbreak of the Second World War. A nostalgic and sentimental portrait of a town’s lost way of life.

'An exquisite portrait of Hiroshima before the bomb that conjures a powerful sense of what - and who - was lost.’ ★★★★★ Stephen Kelly, Total Film

'A gorgeously rendered and deeply personal portrayal of a young woman's life in the part of the world where history's greatest conflict reached a devastating conclusion.’ ★★★★ Dan Jolin, Empire
