director:
Sunao Katabuchi
cast:
Non, Yoshimasa Hosoya

Suzu, an 18-year-old housewife in WWII-era Hiroshima, struggles to support her new husband and family despite food rationing, air raids, and wartime accusations against her. In a country torn apart by war, Suzu must deal with everyday tragedies in whatever way she can. As she tries to make the best of her situation, Suzu never loses hope. Told in gorgeous, delicate animation, Suzu’s story is at once an intimate family drama and a confrontation of one of the most devastating, horrific events of recent history. “An exquisite portrait of Hiroshima before the bomb that conjures a powerful sense of what—and who—was lost.” (Total Film)
