Her name is Keiko Hahn, she is 91 years old. Keiko married an American soldier in 1951 when she was 20, and she crossed the ocean after the second World War.
She was called a “War Bride” – she now lives in Lima, Ohio.

An ambitious work depicting her life, family, and the struggles of a Japanese woman in post war America, the film explores the questions, “Why did Keiko marry a soldier from an enemy country??” “What was the happiness she found in America?”

Come and listen to the story of Keiko’s tumultuous life, along with the history and relationship between Japan and the United States from the Pacific War to present day.
