Sora No Umi – The Ocean’s Emptiness tells the moving story of Mayumi’s childhood in 1931. A 10-year-old girl from the Japanese island of Okinawa, who later becomes one of the most committed anti-whaling activists.
Mayumi grows up as a modest fisherman’s daughter in a small village on the coast.
One day Mayumi has an unusual encounter.
One who will change her life forever…
