Wonderful, hyper-romantic, mystic and summerly Japanese animation, on a young student who falls in love with a fire fighter but has to let him go again far to soon if he suddenly dies.

Minato is a young fire fighter who always strives to do the right thing. He also dreams of the tall girl with hazel coloured hair that effortlessly defies the waves surfing every day. Hinako feels completely free in the water, but very clumsy on land. The two fall deeply in love with each other during a wonderful summer, a first love that promises to be forever. Until suddenly, the world turns grey: Minato dies. But in Hinako's intense process of mourning, something magical happens.

An impressive film about how sublime it can be to love someone and how you can say goodbye to the person you love most in a miraculous, amazingly original way.
