      Asayo Murakami was a young woman, who was described as a happy lass, who sang and danced and tended to her flower garden. But behind all that, she had a deep past that haunted her.

      This documentary is presented by filmmaker Linda Ohama, who profiles her grandmother Asayo, and discovers a painful past in her life.

      Murakami left her hometown of Hiroshima, Japan in 1923 to settle in Stevenson, BC. She came to Canada with a determination to marry the man she chooses. But life in this new world was marred by racism and leaving behind her home country was also tarnished by painful memories of the war. She also talks about how the Japanese learned to adjust in this Western culture.

      The documentary is presented in breathtaking dramatic sequences, superimposed with images and memories. It is deeply personal and yet shows a great part of what has happened in history. Murakami looks backs into her life in this documentary and recounts her experiences. It is a touching tale of a woman who has endured so much to be able to receive so much as well. The film culiminates in a grand reunion of mother and daughter, and reflects the endurance and spirit of an ordinary woman who was made extra-ordinary by her experiences.
