In June 1945 during the air raid in Kobe, Seita and his sister Setsuko lose their mother as a result of an incendiary bomb raid. As their father has been out of contact since he had gone off to war, the brother and sister are taken in by a distant relative in Nishinomiya. Unable to stand the ill-treatment by their aunt, Seita and Setsuko move into a bomb shelter to live alone together. As the war worsens, Setsuko gradually wastes away. Seita cheers Setsuko and tries his best to survive while reminding himself of their kind mother, strict father, and the peaceful days only a few months back. Finally, the day of Japan’s defeat arrives.

    the chance, Meaning, the person may not stop as the
    chance of winning is still there. You can
