The 30-minute film centers around a group of high school nurses called Himeyuri who served during the Battle of Okinawa during World War II.

The Himeyuri Alumnae Incorporated Foundation, which runs the Himeyuri Peace Museum in Okinawa, produced the film with the aim to convey the experiences of those high school nurses, many of whom lost their lives during the battle, to children.

Like a great iconic game's slogen says: "War... War never changes." Really, it doesn't. It doesn't change much on the matters if it takes place in the Napoleon Era, in the Ancient Egypt, in the modern days or the World War II. In war time, not only the soldiers suffered with the heavy losses and femine. The civilians were too, but since the citizenship, the socialist ideas it became more emphased if the civilians were suffering. I don't have to tell anything really any particular about the World War I, the national independence wars or even about the World War II. There are iconic movies read more
