1945. Junpei and his little brother Kanta are two children who live with their father Tatsuo on a tiny island off the northernmost shores of Japan, and which has remained virtually untouched by the rage war. As Japan surrenders on August 15th, everybody is expecting American troops to land anytime. But it is the Red Army which arrives instead, because the island has now become Soviet Union territory. And for the Japanese community, a new life with the Soviet citizens who have moved onto the island begins... Based on true events.
