Synopsis:


During the Second World War, the Japanese government wanted to use the character Momotaro, the hero of a folk tale, in an animated propaganda film. Premiering right in the final stages of the conflict, its influence would be fundamental for the future anime industry. Now, this seminal work has been rescued from obscurity in a superb restored version.
