Obon

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.
