YesAsia Editorial Description

Legendary veteran actress Yoshinaga Sayuri returns to Japan's snowy northern region in Sakura Guardian in the North, the final chapter of the "North Trilogy" after A Chorus of Angels and Year One in the North. Takita Yojiro (Departures) directs Nasu Machiko's script about a woman's strength and a family's loss and reunion over two decades and two generations. Set in 1945 and 1971, the film features a distinguished cast that includes Sakai Masato, Shinohara Ryoko, Abe Hiroshi and Sato Koichi.

In 1945 in the final days of WWII, the Soviet army invades and seizes Sakhalin Island from Japan. Ezure Tetsu (Yoshinaga Sayuri) is forced to flee with her two sons while her husband (Abe Hiroshi) remains on the island to fight. Tetsu and her sons end up in Abashiri in Hokkaido. In 1971, Tetsu's son Shujiro (Sakai Masato) returns to Japan after finding success in the U.S. In Sapporo, Shujiro sees his estranged mother again for the first time in 15 years and finds that she is struggling to get by on her own. He takes her in, but Tetsu wants to return to Abashiri by herself. Shujiro accompanies her on a journey through Hokkaido and memories of the past.

Product Information

In the spring of 1945, cherry blossoms flower in southern Sakhalin. For Tetsu Ezure and her sons, they symbolize hope. But the following August, the Soviet Union invades and they flee from Sakhalin. Barely managing to make it across the strait to Hokkaido, they make their way down the coast to Abashiri. Awaiting the battered family there is a life so harsh as to strain the imagination: cold and hunger through which they myst struggle to survive. They younger son, Shujiro, now grown, returns from America. He returns to Abashiri for the first time in 15 years to find his older brother gone and his elderly mother living alone in poverty still waiting for her husband to return. Shujiro decides to take her home and care for her. Tetsu, however, disappears, not wishing to cause problems for her successful son. Shujiro, in an effort to reach out, decides to accompany her, and the two set out around the vast plains of Hokkaido on a journey into the past. The Journey, however, opens the door to some long-buried memories.
