ABOUT GIOVANNI’S ISLAND

SYNOPSIS

On August 15th, they told us we had lost the war.
At that time, we did not really understand.
Then one day, everything changed.
Many soldiers, wearing uniforms we had never seen before, arrived on the island.
That was the day I met Tanya.

In the aftermath of the most devastating conflict mankind had ever experienced, the tiny island of Shikotan became part of the Sakhalin Oblast… and on the unhealed border of this remote corner of the world, friendship among children from two different countries timidly blossomed, striving to overcome language barriers and the waves of history. Based on true events.

A dramatic yet heart-warming story of cross-cultural friendship among children in the aftermath of WWII.

Based on true events.
