Grave of the fireflies : Hotaru no haka by Isao Takahata( Visual )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grave of the Fireflies is based on the partially-autobiographical book of the same title by Akiyuki Nosaka. It takes place in the latter part of World War II and is a somber film about Seita and his younger sister Setsuko, who lose their mother when she dies during a firebombing. Their father is serving in the Japanese navy, so Seita and Setsuko try staying with a distant aunt who soon grows to resent them. Things proportionally deteriorate and they strike out on their own. As we follow Seita and Setsuko doing their best to survive in the Japanese countryside, battling hunger, prejudice, and pride in their own personal battle, the film unintended results into one of the best (anti)war movies ever made. -- from http://www.ghibliworld.com (Sep. 12, 2011)

As the Empire of the Sun crumbles upon itself and a rain of firebombs falls upon Japan, the final death march of a nation is echoed in millions of smaller tragedies.

They are forced to fend for themselves in the aftermath of fires that swept entire cities from the face of the earth
