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. 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 Harbour is bombed.

FACE MASKS: Due to the rising level of covid infections and the generally fluid nature of the pandemic as winter closes in, the committee has made a decision that we are going to ask the audience to wear face masks during the screenings, the guidance as stated on our brochure.

We will review our position in the New Year.
