3. 3. 2024 film Pledge to Megumi in Lucerna Cinema
The film was made on the basis of a true story of 13-year-old Megumi Yokota who disappeared while on her way back home from school in 1977. Despite an extensive search, the Japanese police were unable to find her. Her name reappeared in the public awareness in the 1990s when Japanese society began mentioning the possibility that some people – potentially as many as several hundred – had been abducted to North Korea. The country admitted it actually kidnapped 13 people from Japan to its territory after 2000. Megumi became a symbol of the fight for these people to return home.
