Like ghosts from the past they have come forth to testify to their suffering and to warn humanity. They are the "hibakusha" of Hiroshima, the survivors of the first nuclear attack.
The film takes us to Japan where two Hibakusha, Mrs. Tominaga and Mr. Murata, are introduced as they prepare to leave for a mass peace demonstration to be held in New York coincidentally with the United Nations' Second Special Session on Disarmament.
Unlike other films on the survivors, NO MORE HIROSHIMA contains few images of those killed or maimed. Rather, this documentary reveals the mental anguish of the hibakusha, and their deep rooted fear that world leaders will ignore their warnings and subject future generations to the horrors of nuclear war.
