SYNOPSIS

Set in 1943, baseball is banned in Japan as "a sport of the enemy country" as Japan is at war with the U.S. The baseball match between Waseda University and Keio University (the So-Kei game), which is hugely popular nationwide, is no exception. Despite the harsh conditions, students and faculty members decide to make arrangements to hold "one last So-Kei game" to give a send-off to students who may be drafted to war at anytime and may not return alive. Based on true story.
