An emotional wartime drama experience from individual perspectives of same-sex lovers, Hinata and Eiji. This is their story of America’s assault on Japan in 1945, during the final days of war.
Hinata longed for his Eiji to return from war. Alone in the idyllic countryside whilst other areas of Japan were torn asunder. One day, he receives a letter from his lover filled with the scent of sunflowers and his undying love for him, followed by official news of his presumed death at Iwo Jima. Heartbroken. Yet determined to honor his promise to Eiji; to live the life they were unable to live together.
Eiji fought honorably for Japan at Iwo Jima. He fell injured in a banzai charge to be classified as dead. He recovered with the aid of an American lieutenant who escorted him back into the mainland for espionage work. His one chance and hope of return to Hinata’s side.
A controversial risk of a war story set at the end of WW2, 1945 within Hiroshima and Nagano, Japan. Two sides of the war are shown from the individual perspectives of same-sex lovers Hinata and Eiji.
