Midnight Sun (タイヨウのうた Taiyō no Uta, lit. “Song of the Sun”, officially “Song to the Sun”) is a movie starring the Japanese artist and singer YUI. In the movie, she plays the role of Kaoru Amane (雨音 薫), a 16 year old girl who suffers from the rare skin condition xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), a disease that makes the ultraviolet radiation of sunlight potentially lethal to her. YUI’s character is partly based on herself, as she is an amateur singer and guitarist, and she performs three of YUI’s songs in the movie; It’s Happy Line, Good-bye days and Skyline. There has also been a Japanese TV drama based on the movie, starring Takayuki Yamada and Erika Sawajiri.
