Description: Set at the mouth of a river in Osaka, Japan less than 10 years after WW II, this touching drama centers on the life lessons learned by two disparate young boys. Asahara's parents own a small restaurant. Sakurai is his new friend. He lives with his mother in a houseboat.. It does not take long for Sakurai and Asahara to become close friends, but the latter is puzzled by Sakurai's unwillingness to talk about his mother and his refusal to allow Asahara to visit his home.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
