The day before the final closure of an historic movie theater in Hiroshima, a mysterious man appears. He tells a tale of Hiroshima’s past. Of a baseball team, the Carp. Of their coming from the ashes of wartime. Of how they were penniless, but with the support of their dedicated citizens they not only survived, but thrived. Through the Samson and Goliath like tales of the Hiroshima Carp’s past, our mysterious storyteller helps the owners of the movie theater devise a plan to try and resurrect their venue to the backdrop of an historic modern victory of Hiroshima Carp in the Japanese baseball league.
