    • A Japanese teenager was killed while surfing in Hawaii. His single mother Sachi flies to Hanalei Bay and confronts this sudden loss. Since then for ten years, Sachi visits the island every year in the same season and stays a couple of weeks to reconnect with her estranged son.
      Sachi can’t fill in the gap of an unbearable distance after all, but one day she meets with two young surfers about the same age as her son when he died.
