Sound of Waves

Shimajima kaisha | 島々清しゃ(しまじまかいしゃ)

Directed by Kaze Shindô
Japan, 2016


Umi’s hearing is so sensitive that even notes played slightly out-of-tune give her a headache. Violinist Yuko arrives from Tokyo to play a concert on Umi’s small island near Okinawa, and gradually befriends the girl.
