Synopsis

Yuko is back in Japan after being freed as a hostage in the Middle East.
But six month after, her return is proving to be much more of an ordeal. It seems the whole of Japanese society is against her after being embarrassed and horrified at the international attention she received. Yuko is "bashed" every day by insults in the street, anonymous phone calls and even physical violence.
Fired from her job, her isolation from the outside world deepens along with her despair.
After losing her only supporter - her father - she begins to think the unthinkable: to return to the only place where the expressions on people's faces aren't cold or filled with anger, to the only place she has ever felt needed.
While buying Japanese sweets for the Middle Eastern children she allows herself a secret little smile.
