Natsuo, youthful head of the family, meets Yuki, a bank clerk.
18 March 2002 | by (Wahiawa, HI) – See all my reviews

Natsuo Shinoda, has been head of the household of a "Mom and Pop" bicycle shop ever since the death of the elder Shinodas. One day, he shows a boy how to ride a bike, which strikes passerby Yuki. Harsh words are exchanged, but Natsuo cools off and apologizes to her. They find something to like about each other, and this leads to SCUBA lessons.

However, Natsuo hasn't been attentive to his high-school-age sister, Chika. She's been intimate with classmate Hiroto, and the pregnancy test is Positive! His younger brother, Jun harbors an "impossible ambition," to become a teacher in spite of his hearing/speaking disability. Hiroto, an indifferent student, has been hanging out at Pachinko and video game parlors with a gang of motorcycle-borne purse snatchers who prey upon old bank customers. Yuki has a secret--a heart condition that's kept her from experiencing LIFE. Her father, Shogo Katase, is a Juvenile Crime detective who's been watching Hiroto as a purse-snatching suspect. Seiji, a young doctor, considers Yuki his due to their long association at the hospital where Yuki has been a patient. Will Natsuo keep away from Yuki and let her go to America for a heart transplant with Seiji?

Will Hiroto remain on the straight and narrow path as he promised Chika? Stay tuned as the "underwater snows"
