This is a remake of a film produced in 1954, based on a novel by Tsuboi Sakae. It examines the relationship between Hisako, a young primary school teacher, and her twelve pupils on the island of Shodoshima in the Seto Inland Sea from the early Showa era until the end of the Second World War. Despite being a time of great hardship and tumultuous change, Hisako remains steadfast in her integrity in the face of escalating militarism and poverty.
