Ocean Waves is the official English title (from Japan) for a film more commonly known as I Can Hear the Sea (the literal meaning of the Japanese title). Set in Kochi (on the island of Shikoku), Umi tells the story of a love triangle that develops between two good friends and the new girl in school who transferred from Tokyo. The new girl, Rikako, is at first arrogant and distant, but eventually makes friends.
