The film focuses on Chinese ‘comfort women’ during World War II. At the time of filming, only 22 of the 200,000 Chinese victims forced into sexual slavery remained alive. Quietly humanistic, this challenging film follows these elderly women as they go about their lives, listening to them talk about their experiences and their own perspectives, including both suffering and happiness. Avoiding intrusiveness, the film assembles and preserves fragments of histories both factual and highly personal, ensuring their voices are heard. This is a new 2016 Director's Cut of the documentary, edited from the 2015 original.
