A documentary closely following a people's struggle against the construction of a new U.S. military base in Okinawa. It reveals not only their deep sadness and anger but also their warmth and humor.

Violent confrontations are not the only subject of this documentary. It also reveals the thoughts and histories of the local people who have had to live side-by-side with the U.S. military bases, the rich culture and way of life they have carefully nurtured in spite of Okinawa's harrowing history, and the singing and humor they have maintained even amidst intense struggle. The film poses Okinawa's wish to the world, that an end be put to seventy years at the mercy of conflict.
