UEDA Toshiko, an actual manga artist who pioneered a path for women in manga, was born in 1917 and spent her childhood in the city of Harbin, in what was then Manchuria. Starting with her own memories, this work brings those days back to life, also relying on an enormous amount of materials and historical sources, as well as interviews of those who were actually there.
