In this unique romance, a recently divorced man named Shiraiwa (Joe Odagiri) relocates to another town to start a new life. Shiraiwa, whose marriage ended under traumatic circumstances, begins the process of healing in his own way—he signs up for carpentry lessons at a vocational school, and starts training for the upcoming season of local baseball. When one of his classmates brings him to a local “hostess club,” Shiraiwa meets an eccentric hostess, Satoshi, who takes an instant liking to him, and the two form a unique bond. Over the Fence is the third in a trilogy of adaptations based on short stories by Japanese novelist Sato Yasushi, who wrote extensively about a fictional seaside town based on his home city of Hakodate.
