Screening

Yuna, a 15-year-old girl, lives on the island of Minami-Daito with her father. Minami-Daito is located 360km east from Okinawa Island. Since there is no high school there, students leave the island when they graduate from junior high school. Next spring, Yuna will move to Naha to enter high school just like everyone else and she will live with her mother. Yuna's family lives apart and she is worried about her father who will be left alone on the island. She hopes that her family will live together someday. As Yuna prepares to leave, she puts together her farewell performance to express her gratitude and love to her parents and to her island.
