Okinawa Focus

One thought that everyone thinks when they fall in love, “This love is the truth, the love of a lifetime.” But most of the time, in the course of daily life, that feeling fades and is forgotten. Someone might say, “If you hold on to such a passionate feeling for the rest of your life, you’ll get tired. That’s fine.” However, life is beautiful if we can cherish such a single thought. I have another beautiful thought. The desire to heal and watch over the hearts of loved ones who have been torn apart by unrequited love. It’s not a heart-thumping, painful love, but it’s a feeling that’s truly enveloping and just right to call it love. Well, the heroine who is wavering between these two thoughts is 79-year-old Grandma Nabbie. A great love story that spans over 60 years is “NABBIE’S LOVE”. Nanako, who is tired of living in the city, returns home. What rocked the normally laid-back island of her hometown was the great love affair of her grandmother Nabbie. Will Nanako be able to find true love in Grandma Nabbie’s love that transcends her time?
