Set in the autumn of 1941 in Salty Creek, a fishing village in South Carolina, this film tells the dramatic story of interracial lovers swept up in the tides of history.

As World War II rages, a wounded stranger, Mr. Ohta, appears in town under mysterious circumstances. Sophie, a native of Salty Creek, quickly becomes transfixed by Mr. Ohta and a forbidden courtship blossoms. When Pearl Harbor is bombed, a surge of misguided patriotism and bigotry sweeps through the town, threatening Mr. Ohta’s life. A trio of women, each with her own secrets—Sophie, along with the town matriarch and her housekeeper—rejects law and propriety, risking their lives with their actions.

Join us for a Q&A after the screening with the filmmakers. Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended using the link below.
