Synopsis:
The movie sets in a few weeks before the American occupation and centers on the lives of two brave siblings, a fourteen year old boy named Seita and his four year old sister, Setsuko. With their father away serving in the imperial navy and their mother tragically killed in an air raid, the two children are forced to stay with their cruel aunt who ill-treated them. After quarreling with their aunt, the two siblings leave the city and venture out on their own, eventually stay in a cave-turned-abandoned bomb shelter. With no adults to turn to, the youngsters must depend solely on each other to survive. But it is not long before their resources are exhausted and Seita is forced into stealing so he can feed the starving Setsuko. And sadly, it seems his little sister is getting weaker by the moment. These dark times are illuminated only by the light of the fireflies.
