A divorced Japanese woman and an African American GI meet in post-World War II Japan and fall in love. After decades of struggle, they have found an accepting Los Angeles suburb to call home – but their peaceful world is changing. 

More than a study of clashing cultures, Yohen is the poetic, resonant story of two partners who discover that intimate relationships change with environments – and love, however time-tested, is never constant.
