In 1946, Australian forces were stationed in Hiroshima, tasked with demilitarising and democratising Japan. Noel Huggett was part of the first group of troops to arrive. During Noel's time there, he met and fell in love with a Japanese woman, Reiko (Ruth).
At the heart of their problems was the White Australia Policy. Noel and Ruth's story reveals the personal impact of such policies in their institutionalised and social forms and the lack of protection of fundamental human rights afforded to Noel and his family - the right to citizenship and the right to marry.
