Yokohama, 1963. Umi is a high school student living in her family�s hillside home overlooking the sea. Every morning she hoists two signal flags towards the bay, sending a message to the horizon. A poem about the flags is published in the school newspaper. Could the author be Shun, the daring newspaper editor who has drawn Umi�s attention? While the two teenagers join in the campaign to save their school�s old clubhouse, their budding relationship takes an unexpected turn when they discover a secret surrounding their past. In a Japan at the crossroads of tradition and modernization, Umi and Shun share a moving story of friendship, love and hope. The film�s rich and vibrant imagery captures perfectly the thrills of young romance and the hope of a new dawn.
