Grüße aus Fukushima

Deutschland 2015/2016 Spielfilm

Summary

When young Marie loses her big love, she just wants to get far away. In her grief, the heartbroken girl joins the charity "Clowns 4Help" and travels to Japan, where she wants to help the victims of the 2011 tsunami and the resulting nuclear meltdown. While attempting to bring a little joy into people's lives with a humorous stage routine, Marie has to realize that her comic talents are actually quite limited, yet instead of leaving for home, she seeks the company of aging Geisha Satomi, who is determined to return to her devastated home in the restricted fallout zone. Slowly getting to know each other, the two unlike women eventually learn that they share similar fears and worries.
