Otowa is the teacher who returns to his home in Hiroshima only to find that the city hich has barely begun to heal from the consequences of the atomic bomb. As he gets in touch with some people he had thought lost, we see the devastation inflicted on not only Hiroshima's people and building but also on the Japanese psyche. It's story told with compassion and a subtle use of flashbacks, Shindo's film is a haunting look at something many would rather forget or gloss over as a necessary act of evil during a terrible war. The film won Untied Nation award in 1956 organize by British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
