ALONE ON THE PACIFIC is a testimony to the human spirit and a well-crafted film in which a youth (Yuiro Ishihara) fulfills his boyhood dream of crossing the ocean. He paddles his little craft past the Osaka Bay coast guard and is immediately hurled into deep waters by a raging blue-black

typhoon that seems sure to send him to his ancestors. He survives the storm, however, and flashbacks of his life show his stern father, understanding mother, loving sister, and devoted friend, to all of whom he tells his desire to sail to America. Throughout the impossible voyage--through more

storms, doldrums, and days upon days without food or water--the plucky, determined youth courageously sails onward to realize his dream. Excellent film fare, sharply directed and well acted.
