Obasan is a powerful and moving story of Japanese Canadians during the Second World War, told through the
eyes of a child, Naomi. Surrounded by hardship and pain, Naomi is protected by the resolute endurance of her aunt,
Obasan, and the silence of those around her. Only after Naomi grows up does she return to question that haunting silence.
