This is a documentary about Beate Sirota Gordon, a 22-yr old American woman who after the Second World War (WWII) ended, drafted two very important articles which were included in the Japanese Constitution, promulgated on 3 November 1946, i.e.:
• Article 14 on "Basic Human Rights" and
• Article 24 on "The essential equality of the sexes"
The film highlights activities undertaken by Japanese women ever since WWII to elicit widespread acceptance of the spirit in which these articles were conceived.
And, last but not least importantly, the film also makes reference to the future by pointing out a way forward.
