Umi has such a good ear, the slightest dissonant sound makes her head ache. The violinist Yuko has come from Tokyo to the island for a concert. Both are troubled by family and friends, but when they meet on the island, they find common ground through music. A tale of one summer when music brought people together in the village of Zamami, in the Kerama islands. In her first film in 11 years, Kaze Shindo directs child prodigy Aoi Ito and Japan Academy Prize-winning Sakura Ando, one of Japan’s leading actresses. The lives of the islanders and the bonds created by music are deftly woven around “Shimajima Kaisha,” a classic Okinawan tune by Tsuneo Fukuhara.
