"Little Boy, Little Boy" is the diary of a journey through Japan. A Narrator accompanies us between testimonies suspended between present and past: a survivor of the atomic bomb of Hiroshima, a Jōruri company, a carver of dolls, a girl from Kyoto... At each encounter, beauty and pain, truth and fiction chase each other in an enigmatic search for the ultimate meaning of our being in the world.
