[ Story ]

This documentary that traces the footprints of singer-songwriter Araki Sakae, who participated in the Mitsui Miike Dispute, a large-scale strike in 1960 that had a major influence on postwar Japan. Sakae left behind a large number of worker songs. The director Minato Kenjiro also grew up near to the Miike mine. A singer, hizuki, who lives in Kobe, visits Omuta City in Fukuoka Prefecture where the dispute took place. She talks to a number of people whose lives were touched by Araki Sakae, such as his work colleagues, other composers, and Okinawa folk singers. Takaishi Tomoya, a leading figure in the Japanese folk world, provides some unexpected comments.
