Synopsis for "Today is Tomorrow"

Japanese pilot, Hiroi Keise, flies several missions for the Japanese Empire, including one mission to escort two of his friends on a Kamikaze run. He is constantly in hopes that the war will come to an end, to which he often consoles himself with the thought, "Perhaps tomorrow". As he finishes the run that sacrificed his friends in their suicide attack, he remembers that tomorrow he is to go on a two-day pass to visit his family. The next day he walks along the street of his hometown of Hiroshima. It is August 6, 1945 and he will never know that his highest hopes are to be fulfilled very soon.
