Pas de Deux for Peace
On this episode, we meet Yevhenii Petrenko and his wife Nagasawa Mie – 2 professional dancers for a famous ballet company in Ukraine. This February, as the couple and their baby boy were visiting Mie's mother in Japan, Russia began its invasion of Yevhenii's home country. We follow the couple as they rehearse for a charity ballet performance that they organized to support Ukraine. We also visit a sushi restaurant in Tokyo where Chinese-born Wen Shuqi trains to become a sushi chef.
