This is the story of a young japanese hearing-impaired couple. One day Shigeru holds interest in surfboarding and soon loses his interest in his job as a employee of the local sanitation service. With the sole psychological help of his girl-friend, he will spend the whole summer trying at the beach.

A little pearl of sensibility. Highly recommended.
