Synopsis

In 1964, an outbreak of the so-called "German" measles in Okinawa struck a U.S. military base and swiftly spread to the local population. One result of that outbreak was that a number of Okinawan children became deaf or were otherwise handicapped. This uplifting movie, based on a novel and a comic strip, tells how a group of these kids formed a baseball team and succeeded in getting to the national championships. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
