Plot – A French woman and a Japanese meet in Hiroshima, place where she has travelled to play a part in a pacifist propaganda film. The man, instead, lives there and is an architect. Neither of them knows exactly the terrible circumstances that happened in Hiroshima at the time of its destruction. Even if they have not seen it, the man carries with himself the story of Hiroshima and of his dead family, just as the woman carries within her the memory of the German soldier she was in love with when she was an 18-year-old girl in Nevers. Now they are both married but have only a few hours before their love will fall into oblivion.
