Chiko is a young Japanese girl whose daily existence in Japan-occupied Korea comes under threat with the advent of World War Two. At first the changes are minor, food and clothes gradually becoming scarce, but eventually Chiko loses friends and family to the Emperor's failing war effort. The family sinks into poverty, and when Japan loses the war they are forced to seek refuge in the US-occupied zone, making an epic and perilous journey across their war-torn land.
