Plot synopsis
More than 70 years have passed since the end of World War II, but no peace treaty has yet been signed between Russia and Japan. While diplomats discuss, ordinary citizens conduct their peace negotiations: a Russian, the granddaughter of the head of the POW camp, and a Japanese, the son of a prisoner of war who was there. They met in the territory of Khabarovsk, where this Stalinist camp was located. Along the way, they told each other how their ancestors got involved in the world war, where they encountered the end of this war, their wives and children ... Will they be able to get along? After all, there are so many things that separate them ...
