David, this is such an original take on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and left me pole-axed. Particularly as you cleverly keep the situation quite ambiguous to begin with, so it feels like an Everyman situation (which, in a way it is). Do you have a particular knowledge of Japan? The piece feels very authentic.
