A collection of surprisingly joyful drawings created by school children living among the ruins of Hiroshima in 1947 becomes the heart and soul of this true, inspiring story about an exchange of gifts between Americans and Japanese after a devastating war. This powerful documentary about reconciliation and the power of gift, introduces the children artists (now in their late 70s) who reflect on their early lives amidst the rubble of their decimated city and the hope they shared through their art. In 2010, the newly restored drawings, buried for decades deep inside a church in Washington DC, are taken back to Japan where they are reunited with the artists and exhibited in the very building where they were created.
