Yuna Nakazato (Ayaka Miyoshi) lives on Minamidaito Island with her father Toshiharu Nakazato (Kaoru Kobayashi). Yuna is the youngest child and she has two older siblings. She has one year left before she must leave the island to attend high school. Her father grows sugar cane on the island. Yuna's mother Akemi Nakazato (Shinobu Otake) lives in Naha, Japan, originally to watch over her older sister Mina (Saori Koide) while she attended high school there. Yuna Nakazato's older brother also works in Naha. Mina comes back to the island with a child.
