Survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Hospitalized with the dreaded atom bomb disease, leukemia, a child in Hiroshima races against time to fold one thousand paper cranes to verify the legend that by doing so a sick person will become healthy. The inspirational story of the Japanese national campaign to build the Children's Peace Statue honoring Sadako and hundreds of other children who died as a result of the bombing of Hiroshima. Ten years after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki died as a result of atomic bomb disease.
Eleven-year-old Sadako Sasaki lives with her mother, father, and siblings in Hiroshima, Japan. On Peace Day—an annual festival in remembrance of the victims of the atom bomb that was dropped on the city nine years before at the end of World War II—Sadako joins her family and her best friend Chizuko at the Peace Park to mourn the dead and celebrate the life that still goes on in Hiroshima. As Sadako moves through the festival, she eats and drinks and laughs with her friends, but also sees many people who bear horrible scars and disfigurations. At the end of the evening, Sadako and her family lower paper lanterns into the river to commemorate those they have lost, and Sadako heads home feeling that good luck is indeed all around her. As she trains for the race her friends and family support and encourage her, and on the big day, Sadako runs hard and wins big.
