Joining the American-British invasion of Iraq in 2003 was Japan’s first military engagement since WWII. Historic peace marches took place in Tokyo, and many of the protesters were young people. In Five Days in March, a number of characters voice their deeply personal concerns. The image they sketch of their personal, everyday lives in Tokyo stands in sharp contrast to their public participation in the demonstrations. In this adaptation of his original 2007 creation, Toshiki Okada sketches a generation of young people who have lost their way.
