Synopsis

In Japan, there is a special way to grieve after having an abortion. This Buddhist ritual, called the water child memorial, allows people to metaphorically return their lost children to the sea. Told through the Japanese American filmmaker’s personal story of abortion in the US, Mizuko is a reckoning with the impact of this cultural context.
