Organ
(あの日のオルガン)

Emiko Hiramatsu

In the closing months of the Second World War, Japanese cities are being bombed at a frightening pace, leading to many innocent casualties. Kindergarten teacher Kaede and music teacher Mitsue band together to take the children under their care to safety outside of Tokyo. They find shelter and a modicum of safety at an old abandoned temple in Saitama as Tokyo burns. Music, and an organ they bring with them, brings solace during a terrifying time.

Inspired by true events, Organ is a heart-warming story of courage, friendship and the power of music.
