"I've no future in Japan, but even if I go back to Brazil they
treat me like a foreigner..."

There are many Japanese-Brazilian youths living in Hamamatsu City
in Shizuoka Prefecture who feel like this.

They are the children of migrant workers, brought to a strange land
by their parents when they were still very young and raised in
Japan. However being Brazilian citizens they have no legal rights
in Japan and some may find it difficult to find a stable life here.

Then to make things worse for them in 2008 there was the Lehman
Shock. During the recession their migrant worker parents where the
first to lose their jobs and so they were forced to return to Brazil.

This documentary film follows the lives of 5 youths over the course
of 2 and a half years and shows their difficult situation as well
as their hopes for the future. After the screening the film's director,
Mr. Kimihiro Tsumura, will speak about what lead him to make this film
as well as the education and employment issues faced by the
Japanese-Brazilian community.

This is a film about the hopes and dreams of those forced to live
in Japan, as well as their thoughts and feelings towards their
ancestral homeland. Living in Tokyo we don't often hear about the
Japanese-Brazilian community, so why not use this unique opportunity
to find out more!
