Tsunami changed lives of many but in the most devastating way possible. Here an archetypal schoolteacher loses his students to the mighty ocean storm that hits the shores. He embarks on a journey to find them and it lands him on a forbidden island. Once a school teacherv- now an old man, living in an old dingy japanese binker, reminiscing the bygone days and unfailingly conducting classes under a solitary tree talking to the moon and the ocean. An outstanding performance by Tom Alter, this film is one under-rated gem.
