Summary:Shigeru, a deaf teenage boy, finds a beat up surfboard on the beach and repairs it. He is on the lowest rung of Japanese society, uneducated, disabled and with few prospects.

Soon, both Shigeru and his also deaf girlfriend Takako are surfing, and in this quiet sea find peace and a sense of achievement that is all too brief.
