Gen is a six-year-old boy living in the Japanese city of Hiroshima. He's barefoot because his family are struggling to get by during World War II. But as difficult as things are, what Gen, his family and the whole city are about to experience will be horrifyingly worse: the atomic bomb. Gen is a bright, engaging character, and this brave animated film has some sweet and cheery moments in the middle of some graphic depictions of the horrendous reality of modern warfare.
