Akiko Takakura ist eine der letzten Überlebenden der Atombombenexplosion in Hiroshima. An Obon, dem japanischen Geisterfest, kehren die Seelen ihrer verstorbenen Ahnen zurück. Akiko wird heimgesucht von ihren Erinnerungen. Ihr Vater ist ein autoritärer Mann und überzeugter Nationalist. Akikos Alltag besteht aus ständigen Zurückweisungen und Schlägen. Doch in den Trümmern einer vernichteten Stadt erfährt Akiko endlich seine väterliche Liebe – ein Animadokfilm.
