A special drama commemorating the 80th anniversary of NHK's broadcasting service. The story is about two sisters who meet each other again after living separated in Japan and Brazil for 70 years. In 1934, Haru and her family emigrated from Hokkaido to Brazil. Haru's younger sister Natsu, however, was left behind in Japan because of an eye disease. 70 years later, Haru visits Japan and locates the whereabouts of Natsu but the younger sister, who thinks she was abandoned by the family, rejects Haru. After a while, the two find out that both wrote numbers of letters to the other though the letters have been left undelivered to the addressees. Through the discovered letters, the sisters learn each other's life; Haru lived in Brazil as a member of an immigrant-laborer family surviving various difficulties while Natsu lived in Japan through the Second World War and postwar economic growth depending on herself and managing a business. The drama portrays the separated sisters' lives full of ups and downs as well as their family ties, asking the meaning of "homeland" and "family." Edit Translation

Beautiful! As a Brazilian-Japanese, that drama had a big impact on me. Seeing the tough journey of the sisters, specially the one who came to Brazil, made me think about my own family’s journey. My grandparents’s families also came to Brazil running away from poverty and almost didn’t make it to Brazil due to the poor conditions they had fo face in the ship.

The drama emphasizes how the lack of communication can lead to huge misunderstandings and broken hearts, but also that it’s never to late to make amends and to forgive.

Great plot, acting and soundtrack. The only bad part was the Brazilian grandchild whose Portuguese was awful! Apart from that, it’s a marvelous drama.

This miniseries have a special place in my heart. One, it's because show without doubts how much was difficult for my ancestors came to Brazil and start a complete new life. From zero to everything they build theirs life and learn how to live in this country, which has a complete diferente culture and customs. And step by step they made their way to construct a important and significant part of the culture in Brazil.

Two, it's show both sides of brazilian people. good and bad. And every place in the world have both. But, also show how they learn to live and love this country. A place that with time they star call home.

They made a complete new home outside Japan. They made with they had a Japan in Brazil. Now, they belong to both culture. Now we made part of the nippo-brazilian culture, and this is what define us. Two countries in one place.
