Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
Sachi (Yo Yoshida) is the owner of a piano bar. She is a single mother and her son is Takashi (Reo Sano). One day, Sachi receives a phone call that her son Takashi died from a shark attack in Hanalei Bay, Hawaii. He was surfing in the bay area when a shark attacked him. His foot was bitten completely off by the shark. Sachi heads to Hawaii.
10 years later, Sachi visits Hanalei Bay annually on her son's death anniversary date. She spends time there reading or looking out into the ocean. One day, she meets two young Japanese surfers and hears from them about a young Japanese surfer, Takahashi (Nijiro Murakami), with only one leg.
- Based on the short story "Hanalei Bay" by Haruki Murakami (published April, 2005 in Japanese literary magazine Shincho).
