Storyline

An Okinawan sansen (3 stringed guitars) player named Ryo and his experiences growing up in Okinawa in 1968. Ryo meets an American military soldier named George, and they discover that they have more similarities than differences. The atmosphere of the film is heavily charged with discrimination and prejudice - Okinawans and Japanese (yes there is a difference-big difference in fact), US military and Japanese/Okinawans, officers and enlisted soldiers- and takes place with echoes of the civil rights movement lingering in the backdrop.
