In 1944, at the end of the Second World War, Uchida was an elementary school teacher on one of the Uchiba Islands. There were several naval special defensive garrisons, and Lieutenant Shaku was a new comer to the island. After he and Uchida met several times, he was attracted to her deeply. At the same time, she was also attracted to his interest in learning and singing those island songs. Gradually, they fell in love with each other. However, her deep love for the Lieutenant also tortured her since the never-ending war would force Shaku to leave the island one day to fight elsewhere - This film is based on the novelist Hideo Mizuo co-authored with his wife Shioya Miho. This film was adapted from their two novels, "The End of the Island" and "Life and Death at the Seaside"
