STORY

Based on the world wide best seller by Haruki Murakami

Tokyo, 1960s… Students around the world are uniting to overthrow the establishment and Watanabe’s personal like is similarly in tumult. He is deeply devoted to his first love, Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman. But their complex bond has been forged by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Watanabe lives with the influence of death everywhere. That is until Midori, a girl who is everything that Naoko is not – outgoing, vivacious, self-confident – marches into his life. Watanabe must choose between his past and his future.
