ハナミズキ 하나미즈키 花水木
High school student Sae Hirasawa lives a simple life with her mother in a peaceful northern fishing town but dreams of a life overseas. She has grown up in the shade of a dogwood tree planted for her as a young child by her itinerant and chronically-ill father, who knew he’d never see his daughter to adulthood. Sae is determined to make it into a top university and increase her chances of landing a job overseas when she meets Kohei Kinouchi, a boy from another high school. The two fall in love and together encourage each other to pursue their dreams, even as it pulls them apart: Sae to a prestigious university in Tokyo and Kohei to the open seas as a fisherman. Inevitably, the physical separation and the widening gap between their ambitions begin to strain their long-distance relationship. As Kohei misses, and increasingly regrets, not seeing Sae grow into a beautiful woman, Sae finds herself inching ever closer to her goal when she meets Kitami, an upperclassman who shares her same dream.
