A 20 minute documentary which details the experience of Lee, now in his 80s, when the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. The film is told through Lee's eyes as he remembers where he was, and how it affected him afterwards. The film uses archive footage against modern day shots of Hiroshima to show how the city has changed, and recovered from it's brutal past. The film touches on themes of memory, and loss, and poses the question: how we can move forwards with our lives when we hold such painful memories?
