Kaoru was suffering from xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), an illness, which also might be described as the allergy to the sun, and was not allowed to be exposed to sunlight. She led a lifestyle opposite the norm, sleeping during the day and active at night. The only motivation in her life was singing herself away every night after dark at a square in front of a train station with a guitar in her hands. Outside her room window, she spots a high school student standing with a surf board in his hands. It becomes her routine to watch him and his friends come and go to the ocean every morning, before going to sleep.

Finaly a teenage drama with a soul
I know that this story was already done a million times, particulary in the oriental cinema. You won´t find any surprises in this plot and don´t go into this movie expecting to see something you haven´t seen before.
Despite this lack of originality, Midnight Sun has a big plus, it´s a movie with teenagers, it has music in it with teenage singing songs but it´s definetely not another "High School Musical" so you can be rest assured that this is realy a little movie with plenty of soul and personality and despite being a teenage movie it´s not another of those teen movies we see coming from Hollywood. After all this is an oriental movie and orient cinema knows how to build characters and give them humanity. Midnight Sun is no exception.
I won´t reveal much of the plot, but i can only say that this is a very good movie wich i recomend to everyone who likes romantic teenage movies with personality. The direction is the oposite of what you would find in a musical with teens, it has plenty of poetic moments and the ending is very good despite the lack of originality. I realy recommend this one.
