”The sound of the piano has not been changed by the atomic bomb"
At 8:15 a.m. on August 6, 1945, a single atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. A piano miraculously survived unscathed amidst the devastation. The film, based on the life of Mitsunori Yagawa, a piano tuner who restored the bombed piano and drove a truck around the country giving concerts, imagines what would have happened if Yagawa had met a certain person or visited a certain place. That person is Nakano, whose grandmother was the original owner of the piano, and together their story brings peace and moves the heart.
