part three sees the granddaughter reckoning with the things (material & spiritual) her mother & grandmother did & didn't leave for her. 

words are my own, footage is mostly public domain but for the last sequence.

dedicated to the memory of those lost to war (here, the Second Sino-Japanese War), & those lost to & in the name of history (here, to Iris, one of its champsions)
