A musical version of Barefoot Gen, an autobiographical manga by Keiji Nakazawa, a manga artist serialized in "Weekly Shonen Jump" since 1973. Since its premiere in 1996, it has been performed overseas repeatedly, "Looking back at the past and looking at the present and looking for the future."

On the morning of August 6, 1945, an American bomber B29 flew over Hiroshima and an "atomic bomb" was dropped, and Gen witnessed the burning of his father, sister, and brother. Gen, along with his mother and sister born in the burn, accepts the temperament of his father, who continued to say, "This war is wrong," and survives with a straight heart like green wheat.
