Set in Yokohama in 1963, the latest animation from Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away) centres on an innocent romance beginning to bud between Umi and Shun, two high school kids caught up in the changing times. While the children work together to save a dilapidated club house from demolition, their tentative relationship begins to blossom. But – in an unexpected twist that parallels what the country itself is facing – a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.
