Set in the autumn of 1941 in Salty Creek, a fishing village in South Carolina, this film tells the dramatic story of interracial lovers swept up in the tides of history.
As World War II rages, a wounded stranger, Mr. Ohta, appears in town under mysterious circumstances. Sophie, a native of Salty Creek, quickly becomes transfixed by Mr. Ohta and a forbidden courtship blossoms. When Pearl Harbor is bombed, a surge of misguided patriotism and bigotry sweeps through the town, threatening Mr. Ohta’s life. A trio of women, each with her own secrets—Sophie, along with the town matriarch and her housekeeper—rejects law and propriety, risking their lives with their actions. Running time: 105 min.
