FEATURES / CONTAINS

Bare Stage/Simple Set

Based on the book by Takashi Nagai, a doctor who contracted leukemia, set in the rubble of the Nagasaki cathedral in which hundreds of Christians died when the bomb exploded directly over its roof. Takashi Nagai wants to raise one of the cathedral bells that was buried beneath the rubble, and he solicits the help of a friend, Ichitaro Yamada, a soldier who survived the war only to return home to find his wife and five children dead. Nagai, a convert to Christianity, attempts to understand the catastrophe through the eyes of faith and to nourish hope and rekindle love in Yamada and every other survivor he can find.
