[edit] Information

In Changchun, China, there is an apartment building called the China-Japan Amity House. It is reserved exclusively for housing of foster parents of Japanese children abandoned by their natural parents during the war. The China-Japan Amity House was established in 1990 by Japanese donors to show appreciation to such foster parents. Although they faced various difficulties, the foster parents adopted the Japanese children and raised them with care by stating “Children are innocent". They are revered and loved by the children from heart, and their family bonds got even stronger than those of blood relatives. However, when the Japanese children reached middle age and returned to Japan, family destiny changed.

Once determined to stay in wealthy Japan with the aim to invite their foster parents to live there, the children, who are already in middle to advanced age, face language barriers and joblessness, and 60 % of such returnees live on social welfare. On the other hand, having lost their beloved children, the foster parents left in China face lonely and insecure lives.

At one time during the war, and now again, the foster parents and the Japanese children are tossed about by the waves of the age. This program depicts the harsh reality of people living on edge and shows their graciousness and grief.
