A woman with a flipped forelock of hair, Mine Okubo, stands in the center foreground, amidst a crowd gathered for an outdoor Easter service. She and those around her cover their faces and in an attempt to protect themselves from the wind and dust storm that occurs. A large cross is erected on a stage filled with performers. Dust fills the air and a hat is blown away. Barracks are visible in the background.
