Product Description:

Shigeru (Maki), a hearing-impaired sanitation worker, finds a broken surf board in a pile of garbage. He decides to mend the board and hit the beach. Shigeru anxiously attempts to catch a wave, unaware of the local's heckles and laughter. With the help of his girlfriend Takako (bearing the same hearing impairment), a local surf shop owner, and a large amount of determination, Shigeru goes on to become a first rate surfer and wins acceptance with the local beach crowd. But, will his love for surfing overcome his feeling for Takako'

Description by Image Entertainment:

A deaf garbage collector happens upon a broken and discarded surfboard. The discovery plants in him dreams of becoming a surf champion. Encouraged by his also deaf girlfriend, he persists against all odds. Though trapped in silence, their expression of love is no less profound. A heartrending masterpiece that, as with Kitano's other films (Sonatine, Fireworks), has a sharp eye for human frailties and a love for the courage of the underdog.
