This story took place after the bombing of Japan during the World War II, two siblings where orphaned due to this incident, and it narrates the difficulties they went through during this time.

This movie showed the human sufferings in Japan after the firebombing.

Author: Isao Takahata

This is a heart wrenching story for an anime. Will definitely leave an impression in your heart.

Warning: Make sure you have a box of tissue with you.

Titles for the Movie Soundtrack is available at

The soundtrack gives you a sense of peace or like a lullaby, has the same qualities as the movie.

I love this particular image.
