Anshu Product Description:

Based on historical events, Anshu¯ is a tale of passion and human triumph in the face of extraordinary adversity, spanning from the cane fields of Hawai‘i to the devastation in Hiroshima. A pregnant and unmarried Hilo teenager, Himiko Aoki, finds her Hawai‘i/ Japanese-American identity clashing with Japan’s cultural norms when she is sent to live with relatives in Tokyo in 1941, and becomes trapped there at the outbreak of war. When America drops the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Himiko finds herself adapting in unexpected ways just to survive.
