In 1944, young Suzu marries a military official and moves to Kure, the site of a major naval base. As she adjusts to her new life, Suzu, like her neighbours, must deal with rationing and air raids, and try to make the best of things. This sobering and positively moving anime depicts the effects of war on everyday communities.
