A young Japanese woman dies instantly at the moment of atomic bomb detonation. A decade later, a film about peace is being shot in Hiroshima. At present day, three Americans watch the DVD of this movie. With shifting realities, transforming characters, and an expansive sound-score and video, I Have Been to Hiroshima Mon Amour creates a mystical world, exploring war and destruction through intimate love stories.
