  1. Congratulations to Barry Frechette and Max Esposito for creating such an inspiring and moving documentary. Beautiful story of dedication, compassion, and the importance of working together towards world peace. Thank Mr and Mrs Mori, for coming to the U.S., and for sharing your story with the world.

  2. A lovely movie. Having been there(Hiroshima) on that day when the bomb exploded, I was also shocked to learn from my own father about the POW who perished with us. My dad was at the seaport, a good distance from the ground zero and was charged with the rescue operations and tried to save 1 POW, about to be stoned on the T-bridge(Enola Gay’s target) by a tattered bunch of old men and women. He and others did not survive, their prison cell was close to the center of explosion. My father was instrumental in providing for their burial as he understood it to be the Western tradition, instead of cremation. He never talked about them until 20 plus years after the bombing. My reaction was a profound relief that there was a bond that connected us on opposite sides through grief and my dad stood for kindness and respect for human beings.
