The plot: "It's about a young man and his older sister who have recently discovered that the man they considered to be their grandfather is actually a step-grandfather and that their real grandfather died as a kamikaze pilot in World War 2. They set out to interview people who knew their real grandfather during the war and unlock the secret as to why their grandfather, described by some as "the worst coward in the navy," and by others a real lover of life, committed suicide as a kamikaze pilot in August 1945, just before Japan's surrender."
