Story

Story

The mischievous students grow up nobly even as war approaches

Japan, just before WWII, Miss Oishi is appointed to teach twelve first grade students in an elementary school on a small island on the sea of Seto. Unlike everybody at that time, she did not wear kimonos but occidental clothes. That led the surprised village people to some harsh criticisms about her. Nonetheless, she develops connections with her pupils to ultimately gain their trust.
However, one day she falls into a hole dug by a group of mischievous boys, hurts her ankle and is forced to teach in the main school, leaving her 12 pupils.
Several years will pass before Miss Oishi could come back again to the small elementary school. But by then the shadow of the war is hanging over the once happy and joyful villagers.
