Synopsis

Four teenagers visit their grandmother at her home in the countryside near Nagasaki. Their idyll is interrupted by a letter: the grandmother's long-lost brother, who emigrated to Hawaii after the War and made a fortune growing pineapples, is dying. His son invites the old woman to the plantation for one last visit, while she recalls the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945.
