A crusty old man and a beautiful young girl live on a fishing boat, which has been floating at sea for over 10 years. The old man plans to marry the 16-year-old on her next birthday, and counts the days down on his calendar. In addition to the girl, the old man also cherishes his bow, which he uses predominantly as a weapon to fight off would-be admirers of his lovely shipmate. However, the bow is also a useful device for shamanistic fortune-telling and creates wonderfully enchanting music as well. The quiet couple lives a peaceful and secluded life, until a teenage boy comes aboard and changes everything.

Critical Acclaim
