Set in the autumn of 1941 in Salty Creek, a fishing village in South Carolina, the film tells the dramatic story of interracial lovers swept up in the tides of history. As World War II rages in Europe a wounded stranger, Mr. Ohta, appears in the town under mysterious circumstances. Sophie, a native of Salty Creek, quickly becomes transfixed by Mr. Ohta and a friendship born of their mutual love of art blossoms into a delicate and forbidden courtship. When Pearl Harbor is bombed, a surge of misguided patriotism and bigotry sweeps through the town, threatening Mr. Ohta’s life. Sophie, along with the town matriarch and her housekeeper, risk their lives to save him.
