One thing is certain. If we see each other, we’ll know.”
Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi) and Taki (Ryunosuke Kamiki) have never met, but when the frustrated country girl wishes of a life in the big city, they will forge a connection both unexplainable and unforgettable.
In their dreams, the two swap lives, cultures and genders as they learn more about, and grow closer to, each other. What was once a shock becomes a joy-filled double life, but what will happen when they discover the red string of fate tying them together?
After making his debut in 1999 with the award-winning short She & Her Cat, Makoto Shinkai left his full-time job at video game developer Falcom to develop Voices of a Distant Star (2002), which he produced, wrote and directed himself.
Two years later, his first feature-length film The Place Promised in our Early Days was released to critical acclaim, launching a career that would be followed by the Miyazaki-esque fantasy Children Who Chase Lost Voices (released in the UK as Journey to Agartha), the emotional drama The Garden of Words and his first break-out mainstream success, Your Name.
