In June 2001, Rizzuto goes to Hiroshima in search of a deeper understanding of her war-torn heritage. She finds herself forever changed by the conflation of two events: the first atomic bombing and the terrorist attacks of 9/11. As her marriage begins to crumble, she confronts her ambivalence about being a mother and the role of memory in how history is fabricated. Reminiscent of Joan Didion, Rizzuto meditates on the role of memory in our lives and how history is a story we tell ourselves to explain who we are.
