During World War II, the Japanese Imperial Forces drafted more than two hundred thousand women from Asian countries, the majority from Korea, and forced them to serve as sex slaves known as "comfort women" for Japanese soldiers. Hanako is an emotional story of the Korean "comfort women" who suffered in silence, as their stories remained buried for decades.
