Opening with the intricate history of China-Japan relations retold in light animated fashion, this moving story traces an old Chinese woman’s search for her adopted daughter, a returned Japanese war orphan missing in Nara, with the support of a second-generation orphan and a retired cop. Under the wing of producers Kawase Naomi and Jia Zhangke, Pengfei (The Taste of Rice Flower, 42nd) unveils the war trauma through his lyrical yet poignant lens, while discovering a nuanced affection that transcends cultural differences.
