We trace the journey of an apology, from Japan to the U.S., that got an unlikely broker. Along the way, she had to work out: what a sorry is, who it's for, and what makes it stick.

Praise the “housewife”! New respect for Mitsubishi. There are a gazillion ways to say sorry in Japanese but no one has ever accepted an apology for Japan’s WWII war crimes...that is until a housewife sent an email to Mitsubishi. You’ll be choking back tears by the end 🥺
