Rhapsody in August

"Tears. Laughter. Innocence. It was a summer of remembering."

One bright summer, Kane's four grandchildren come to visit her in her rural Japanese village. They dislike everything about the countryside and have no respect for their elderly grandmother. This all changes when the grandchildren visit the place where their grandfather was killed by the atomic bomb in Nagasaki. With a new-found respect for their grandmother and a new-found suspicion of the US, the grandchildren bring up the subject of the attack with their parents and their wealthy American cousins. Will the family conflict that results be resolved? Will the tragedy of the past affect the future relationships of the multi-generational family?
