Narrated by George Takei, Message From Hiroshima offers a unique look at the lives and culture of the city before the first ever atomic bomb was used. Today, where the Hon and Motoyasu rivers meet, stands the Peace Memorial Park - the former location of the Nakajima district, which once was home to thousands of people and hundreds of businesses. When the first ever atomic bomb was detonated 2, 000 feet above Hiroshima's city center on August 6, 1945, all of that vanished. Seventy years later, director Masaaki Tanabe makes it his mission to revive the memory of what once was by interviewing hibakusha (survivors) and former residents. These heart-wrenching testimonials, along with computer-generated images of restaurants, shoe stores, cinemas, and the famous Industrial Promotion Hall, recreates the sights, sounds, and smells of a lost culture and people.
