After young firefighter Minato (Katayose Ryota) rescues avid surfer Hinako (Kawaei Rina), the two fall in love. But Minato’s life is cut short in an accident at sea. After the accident Hinako can’t bare to be near the ocean — until the day she hums their song and he appears in the water, unable to move on until she is once again happy.
