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. Sophie is an artist who fishes and sells crabs to the townsfolk; the other, Mr. Ohta, appears in the town badly beaten and under mysterious circumstances, as World War II rages in Europe. 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. Ohta's life. Three women, Sophie, the town matriarch and her housekeeper - each with her own secret - reject law and propriety, risking their lives with their actions.

Based on the novel by Augusta Trobaugh
