As Tokyo burns in the wake of air strikes in the closing months of the Pacific War, nursery teachers lead by Kaede scramble to evacuate the children under their care to an abandoned temple. A rare film showing the little-known realities of women on the home front who answered the call of duty in the face of adversity.
