GRÜßE AUS FUKUSHIMA

With the “Clowns 4 Help” organization, Marie, a german woman, hopes to bring joy to the Fukushima disaster survivors but she soon realizes she’s unsuited for the task. About to run away, she decides to stay with cantankerous old Satomi, the last geisha of Fukushima, who decided to retreat back to her ruined house in the formerly radioactive Exclusion Zone. Two women who couldn‘t be more different, but who, each in her own way, are trapped in the past and must learn to liberate themselves from guilt and the burden of memory.
