A new film, produced by Thomas Heldmark and Rolf Wrangert, tells the story of how the East Asian region, home to almost one third of mankind, made a transition from 140 years of frequent and widespread warfare to an era of surprising peace. The East Asian Peace has now lasted 37 years. A whole generation of East Asian have grown up without war - and with rapidly improving living conditions. Can this last? The film does not just tell how the peace happened but also explores its fragility. Wars are difficult to end. A peace is easy to break.
