Synopsis: At age 103, Asayo Murakami may use a wheelchair, but when filmmaker Linda Ohama -- her granddaughter -- turns on the camera, it's evident that she's still as sharp as a tack and ready to tell the story of how she left her family in Hiroshima to become a "picture bride" to a Canadian man she'd seen only in photos.
