Originally produced by Monterey Media, Inc. in 2017.
Set in the autumn of 1941 in Salty Creek, a fishing village in South Carolina, this film tells the dramatic story of interracial lovers swept up in the tides of history.. As World War II rages in Europe, a wounded Asian 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. As their secret relationship evolves, the war escalates tragically.. When Pearl Harbor is bombed, a surge of misguided patriotism, bigotry and violence sweeps through the town, threatening Mr. Ohtás life. A trio of women each with her own secrets -- Sophie, along with the town matriarch, and her housekeeper -- rejects law and propriety, risking their lives with their actions.. Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival. "Warm, heartfelt... this lovely, evocative movie was written and directed by the talented Maggie Greenwald. The actors are superb. The nuanced writing and direction have insight. The three-dimensional portrayals of women in the rural south during the war are praiseworthy." - Rex Reed, The New York Observer
